    Very hip and cool place, with a nice rooftop bar and a restaurant. The Crash Pad room was small but comfortable, which is all I needed it to be. Location is great if you want to be in the arts district.

    The staff was so helpful. They knew the area so well. When a needed a niche place to eat, they are ready with a great suggestion. The ease of staying there when you have a show at the Underground is matchless. I will definitely stay there again.
