Great location, near everything on foot. Great room, good atmosphere. Good common areas (nice living room to chill in!). Quiet neighborhood.
As others have mentionned, there is kind of a weird smell in the house. I got used to it quickly - it was nothing major to me. The pillows could've been thicker/more comfortable.
