The room was very spacious, with a living room / kitchen / dining counter in one room, a bedroom and a bathroom. The bedroom had a real door so it could be closed off if someone were busy in the living room. The space was bright and pleasant, a very nice space.
The kitchen was fully equipped with appliances and a few, but adequate, pieces of cookware.
The bedding was comfortable, a bit softer than I like, but there were good reading lights and mains outlets on each side of the bed.
The living area’s desk had two lamps, two mains outlets and two USB charge points. There was a handy little shelf next to the entry door with four mains outlets and two USB charge points, very useful.
The bathroom was good, with bright lighting. The toilet paper was eco but extremely thin - if you have to use 3x as much to do the job, it is not really all that eco. The shower was nice but not at all eco, with a fixed spray head on the wall and an all full force- or- nothing control valve. When are US hotels going to wake up and offer a wand and a volume control so we can direct a lower volume spray and not waste so much water?
Likewise, the breakfast was not at all eco, everything but the salt shaker was use- once- and throw away. The food was good, but eating with paper plates and plastic cutlery is not something that should happen in a $350 per night hotel.
The location has lots of restaurants and a metro station nearby.
