Brand new in mid-2021, this eight-floor newcomer has a terrific location by The Wheel (some rooms have a view of it), which shares the parking structure. That prime situation means you will never lack for fun places to eat and party at night. When you finally turn in, your room’s style is corporate/modern, with lots of putty-colored and beige lines but a shower stall instead of a bathtub. Some rooms come with kitchenettes that are better equipped than the average: electric stovetop, fridge, microwave, dishwasher, dishes, utensils, and cookware. But for all that convenience, there is a not-insignificant tradeoff: The pool is small and dull.
