From the outside, it looks like another six-floor cookie-cutter chain hotel building, but on the inside, this newly constructed addition (opened in 2021) emulates loft-style quarters—are all those exposed pipes and wires in the lobby real or just an interior designer’s fulfilled fantasy? Rooms lead with contemporary ‘tude—multicolored rugs and not carpets, bathroom sinks behind the bed by a demi-wall and WC hidden behind a slider door, plush sink-into-them beds, and updated TVs that can remember your Netflix credentials during your stay. Overall, it’s easy to like because it’s fresh and rooms don’t feel like every other brand’s, and it’s handily midway between Disney and SeaWorld. We just wish that blah concrete swimming pool had a quarter of the design panache you see indoors.
