Great wine happy hour, 1/2 block from the red line. Right in the middle of everything! Loved the spa king room with floor to ceiling windows. Stayed on the 11th...

The tub, in particular, was fantastic! It prompted me to inquire at the front desk about bath salt. I figure it never hurts to ask,...
