We were a little nervous when we first pulled up because the exterior of the building is just OK. And the location can be hard to find. But the rooms are fabulous. A bit on the small side but very hip and decorated to perfection....More

Not sure whether there’s an outdoor pool. I found the indoor pool to be somewhat dungeony - in basement, no outdoor lighting. It was adequate in size for an indoor facility; short laps are possible.

I have done the walk many times, but it takes a while to learn the ropes because the streets are a bit confusing. If you have a phone with GPS, I recommend using directions the first time, There is no shuttle.
