Great staff. Great location. We booked outgoing bus tickets through them and they gave us the exact same price as we found online, and they made sure we made it onto the shuttle to the station. Rooftop Patio is the best in the area and amazing for sunsets.

Great staff. Great location. We booked outgoing bus tickets through them and they gave us the exact same price as we found online, and they made sure we made it onto the shuttle to the station. Rooftop Patio is the best in the area and amazing for sunsets. Only critique would be the lack of a fan in out room. After a couple of days it felt pretty stuffy.
