Fodor's Review

On the edge of Chinatown, this small hotel has a location as good as many other downtown hotels but charges much less. There's not much in the way of amenities, but the bare-bones accommodations are fine for a brief stay. Rooms are done in a coffee-and-beige color scheme and have small bathrooms (a separate sink and mirror are in the bedroom). All rooms have work areas with complimentary wireless access. A skylight from the fourth-story ceiling floods the corridors with natural light.
