          gritty area has seen a cultural resurgence boasting an
          excellent nightlife and one of the most multi ethnic

          record stores, second hand shops, and student bars
          that seem to light up the streets day and night. The

          The hotel website indicates that the prestige room category has a better location/view than the superior category, but I noticed that someone had asked about a balcony and they were advised to book either a superior room or a suite. I guess i'm asking is the prestige category a nicer room(or location) than the superior, do the prestige category rooms have balconies?
