This is a beautiful boutique hotel however the staffing did not live up to the Nobu name. They charge $45/day for Valet however they rarely had a valet attendant outside so you are forced to park and go inside to find someone to help. The room was small as expected but very comfortable and minimally plush. However due to the location, I was awoken every morning at 5am by street sweepers and garbage trucks.

Refurbished hotel that is now a Nobu. Elevator does not work so you need to enter via smelly service entrance and take service elevator. Plates left outside of room me for over a day. Not impressed
