Absolutely loved how easy the check in and check out process was. They allowed us to check in early and check out a little bit later than scheduled. The communication with the staff was always pleasant and they answered the text messages immediately. The place was clean and extremely comfortable with the perfect location. Also, the luggage storage option that they have even after the check out was the cherry on top. Definitely will be booking my future stays with sonder.

I rented this room out for my parents anniversary & I gave them all the information they needed but the lady at the door had them waiting outside for around 1-2 hours. The lady didn’t want to open the door and didn’t bother helping them out. I don’t understand why that happened and that wasn’t okay.

Wish we could keep this place a secret!
If you don't need the amenities of a traditional 4- or 5-star hotel, this is an amazing place for the money. Although it was off-season, it was still $100-150 less than the 4- and 5-star hotels in the vicinity. Very clean. So modern. Amazing view. Fitness center. Gorgeous pool.
