Thank-you for your great review. We look forward to welcoming you back for your fifth of sixth visit in the future!

Not overly impressed with the Blackman, beds about the only good thing, there seems to be some need of training in customer service for the front of house staff. Compared to the other art series we've stayed at it doesn't compare.

Yes, it starts about 6:30 AN. I happened to be on the 5th floor and woke up to guys in my window. If I had only been warned and was able to shut the blinds. Just ask for a room that does not face it.
