    Secret Amenities?

    Sofa bed and bedrooms had bachelorette party confetti (inappropriately shaped) found throughout the sheets and cracks but luckily it had a washer and dryer so we just washed everything , and the cabinets had left behind Candies and chips. But everything was unopened, clean and neat it was very curious what was amenities and what was a previous guests. the parking you had to pay for as well no matter where you where at, which was $25/35 Day ! No pool access and no guests were able to swim regardless unless you had a wrist band your only provided 4 wristbands for the swimming pool.

    Nice flat, great location

    The apartment was wonderful. I was less impressed at the inflexibility of refunding, due to Covid-19 cancellation. The airlines and other hotels that I know have been very kind about refunds. Thus, I may find another place to stay when I return.

    Get a real hotel

    It started when the taxi pulled up and the address doesn't exist. There are no signs for Sonder. We called the phone number in the confirmation only to find out that we would have gotten all that information if we had verified a credit card. Only problem was that Sonder never sent a verification form. Once that was straightened out, we discover that we can't get into the room early, nor can we drop off our bags. We had to carry our luggage 1/2 a mile to a cleaners to store them for $20. The room wasn't ready until check in time, 4 pm, which is later than I've ever seen at a hotel. Once we're in we find that there's no way to watch TV. Sonder expects us to use streaming services to cast shows from the internet to the TV. That wasn't an option for us. The room was clean and the bed comfortable. The hardwood floors were pretty but uncomfortable. Soundproofing was sub par. Street noises came through, and it's not on a busy street. The apartment owner in the unit above Sonder stomped around for 30 minutes at a time.
