Already planning to go back
We had so much fun here. The staff is awesome and well trained. We loved the availability of the living rooms too. The only thing I'd recommend is more menu choices. But this is a great place with amazing staff.

Hip/Cool/Relaxing stay :)
Very cool and hip property. Lots of nooks and crannies to hang out in the lobby and bar area. We had a great view of the capitol from our room and the space is so well used, even though small there is nothing lacking. I loved the rain shower and the convenience of controling everything from an ipad. The only thing missing for us were firmer pillows, they were a little too Fluffy for our taste.

Good for the money i guess
The hotel was very clean but very small. The size reminded me of staying in a hotel in Japan. The room ventilation system didn't work well, so it was really cold. Water temp in the shower failed one day and never got hot... Parking was extra, serviced by a building next to the hotel(expensive). Probably won't come back next time.

CitizenM is a hidden treasure
It was truly an amazing stay. Modern, sleek, comfortable, and close to work, I loved this place. It will be my "go to" hotel when I need to stay in the city.

Absolutely loved this property! Only thing is the rooms are freezing. I had to call the front desk to ask why the room doesn’t get warmer. Other than that i enjoyed my stay. Would recommend
