Great Stay
I usually stay at a hotel when traveling but found and thought I would try this "condo-hotel". Extremely glad we did. Great place to stay. Very happy. Comfortable bed. Full kitchen. No sitting area in the unit we stayed in...but it was one of the studios. No parking but we found a lot down the street. Hallway carpets were being replaced. We didn't look for or try out the gym. No official front desk but there was usually some sort of security sitting there. Checked in via some sort of application (link) on my phone. I am not very technologically savvy but got through it. Was sent codes for entry 3 days before check-in. Would definitely stay here again!

The chairs in the room were not functional chairs to use for meals or just while watching tv. We would have liked to have a few extra towels — as there is not a front desk that would have been nice to have in the “laundry room”. The check in time does not say that it is a FIRM time, you cannot get into the building or room until your check in time. We were able to call and change that with a fee, but it was not clear that you couldn’t get in the building or room until after the check in time. The room itself & the location was perfect for our extended weekend business trip. We will be staying at Sonder more often.
