"The epitome of swish sophistication... Pricey, ultra-cool and almost disarmingly self-aware."

"Irreverent, unexpected, and surreal, its mind-bending and modern design is a little bit Alice in Wonderland and a whole lot of cool."

Some visitors have remarked on the thin walls and advise booking a room on an upper-level floor to avoid street noise.

"A dimly lit lobby littered with art furniture, lavender-hued corridors, and guest rooms done in restful beiges, grays, and more lavender." Full review
