    Nice place. GREAT location right on Powell Street downtown. Rooms are smallish....but nicely updated. Front desk Millennials are friendly but not super knowledgeable about The City. A bit noisy at night....but, it's a big city! I would stay here again. Good price too.

    We arrived around 12pm from Melbourne and were able to leave our bags (in a separate room) until our room was ready.Checkout was 11am. I found check ins in the US were either 3pm or 4pm everywhere we went!
