Guest Access:
You can access the building anytime after 3pm by using the lockbox to obtain the keys. We ask that you respect our home and the quiet hours of the community. Our home is not baby proofed, and may not be ideal for families with very small children, however, children are welcome at your own discretion.

Interaction with Guests:
Most of our guests prefer to let themselves in with our lockbox entry system, however, we can be available upon request and are always available via phone call or text message should any questions or issues arise.

At Frontdesk, a core value is to be a good neighbor. We extend this 5-star experience to you, our guests, as well as our property partners. This means we have a zero-tolerance policy for parties or gatherings. To ensure this in the most comfortable and least intrusive way possible, we use a noise sensor to detect the noise level inside of the suite. The number of people inside the suite may not exceed the reserved guest amount at any time. While we do not anticipate the need, following multiple warnings, we will utilize local law enforcement to ensure compliance. If removal is required, it will be done at the guest's expense. Thank you for respecting the community and our commitment to be a good neighbor.

House Rules:
Help us be a good neighbor by respecting and following our house rules.
Please be aware that while rare, violation of house rules is grounds for removal at the guest’s expense. If you have questions about our house rules, do not hesitate to reach out by tapping the Scout button on the right.

Quiet Hours
9pm-7am, daily. As with most communities, please keep music, movies, or other noise to a conversational level during the quiet hours.

Noise Monitoring
To ensure we’re being good neighbors, this suite is equipped with a noise sensor that measures decibels. There is no recording of audio, the device is active 24/7 and is located in the living area. If the noise exceeds a reasonable level, our Trust and Safety team will receive a notification and message you. To comply with community regulations, if the noise sensor becomes disconnected we will notify you if we need access to your stay to reconnect it.

We’re here for you
Please do not contact building staff. While our property partners know you’re staying with us, they will be unable to help with questions or concerns. For anything at all, tap the pink icon in the bottom right to talk to a live Frontdesk specialist.

Parties are Not Allowed
Disturbing other residents in this building will not be tolerated. While a rare occurrence, following warnings from your host triggered by the noise sensor or a complaint from a neighbor, you may be asked to leave at your own expense. Local law enforcement will be utilized if necessary.

No Smoking
We are a smoke-free community. This goes for balconies and in or around the building too. No smoking also includes vaping devices and candles. If evidence of smoking is found, a $500 fine will be assessed.

Pets are not allowed. We likely would love your pet, but there will be a $500 fine for having a pet in the suite if not required by local regulations.

Professional Photo and Video Shoots
Commercial shoots of any kind, will not be tolerated. While we do encourage showcasing your stay on social media, chances are, if you are using professional equipment or your content will make a profit, it’s not allowed.

Mind the keys
The lockbox must remain locked at all times (if applicable). Some stays have auto-locking doors so keep the keys on you. If the keys are lost or unreturned a fee of up to $300 dollars will be assessed. A $75 fee will be assessed for overnight lockout service.

Refund needed
What we love about this property: the decor, the openness, the layout, the modern construction, the proximity to restaurants. The amenities were helpful for us when we wanted to bring a meal back and then reheat it the next day. It was also easy to locate the key in the lockbox due to the photos emailed to me. It would have been helpful to have known were a parking garage is. We drove around for quite a bit, when we really wanted to get to the property and relax. Then we walked for about 6 blocks from a garage with our luggage… Boxes of tissues would have been nice, instead of using toilet tissue- usually this is standard. It was challenging to shower in the master shower because there wasn’t a shelf for soap and shampoo. (It felt like summer camp as a kid). Then I realized that there is only one small, teeny light in the bathroom. Housekeeping surely has noticed this because there should be 4 bulbs and 3 are totally missing. I looked for bulbs, but the type that the bathroom needs are not provided in the laundry closet. It was utterly impossible to shave and put on make up and fix hair without light. This is why I would like a discount- a return of some of the money is needed to make up for the fact that our property was not totally usable and accommodating. As I mentioned, the previous cleaner would have noticed that 3 light bulbs are totally missing and did not replace them prior to our arrival. I appreciate your attention to refunding funds to my credit card.
