Not For Those Planning Sleep Before 3 a.m. – My husband and I stayed here this past weekend. Two rooms and little sleep later, we can recommend this hotel for people who intend to be out and up until 3 a.m. only. The first night we were in a room on the 4th floor almost directly above the hotel's dive bar. Screaming drunk people, a booming bouncer's voice, and bongo drums prevented us from sleeping. I called the front desk for the third time a little before 2 a.m. They were friendly, but couldn't let us out of our reservation for the following night as the policy demands 48 hours notice. Instead they promised us a room change in the morning. Around 2:30 a.m. when all the drunk kids finally got in their cars and went home, a drum circle (along with a tamborine player) spontaneously formed outside the pita place across the street and played until just before 3. I wished for water balloons.
The next morning we got "upgraded" to a bigger room around the corner. That night the street wasn't as noisy, but we still ended up turning on the TV around 2 a.m. to try to block out the yelling of the departing bar-goers. Then drunk kids came yelling down our hallway to their room but blessedly passed out. But we still did not get much sleep, the shower in the second room was useless (was good in the first room at least), and the lamp on the nightstand had no lightbulb.
The hotel has the very noisy dive bar and also "Rendevous," a coffee shop/bar downstairs that is worth visiting, as well as many nearby restaurants and bars. Then after a lovely night out, you ought to retreat to a hotel somewhere else.
Where the locals go. – I am a local, this is one of my fav's in town. Kinda dirty and punk-rock.
