4/10 Fair

Not Recommended
Unless you’re staying for weeks and don’t like interacting with people, this place is not worth it. It wasn’t comfortable or cozy and not a productive work environment. The kitchen was the best part and I didn’t even use it much. Things were off and I could not contact anyone from Sonder even after trying multiple times. If you book this property maybe you’ll have better luck going through them directly. I plan to never stay here again.

8/10 Very good

Great location with outdoor deck.
The full kitchen was great and several grocery options are within a 10 minute walk. Furniture is not particularly comfortable and the streaming-only tv was a bit of a bummer as neither of my apple devices would connect. Bed was comfortable and the bathroom was sufficient (though not fancy). Biggest complaint was that the gap at the bottom of the door is very large so sounds from the elevator and others on the floor were sometimes too loud. Fortunately the bedroom is far from the door with a separate door for sound control, but if someone is going to sleep on the sofa/pullout, noise may be an issue for them. Really the best parts of the hotel are its location and the shared spaces on the 2nd floor. The outdoor deck with a fire pit, large kitchen with tables for a larger group, and the game room were really great to access.
