Pros:We stayed in one of the small rooms. It was indeed small, but extremely well designed and comfortable. It was surprisingly quiet for all of the Fringe mayhem. The shower was the best hotel shower of any hotel I have ever stayed in. The staff were very friendly and helpful. We love this place and will stay here again.
