Had a great stay at 21c hotel. Was in town with my wife for a show at DPAC. The hotel has fabulous art, a nice restaurant and very convenient to the performing arts center. We would definitely come back.

Room was NEVER made up. After informing the front desk( I was out of the hotel from 9:30 am until 6:30pm),I asked for at least fresh towels, shampoo, conditioner and water to be brought to my room. I then went out once again and returned to the hotel at 11pm, the towels and shampoo/ conditioner/ soap were there, but not the water. I called front desk to have water delivered. I was put on hold ( for manager to come to the phone), and was left there for nearly 20 minutes. I finally had to come to the 2nd floor reception to get the 2 bottles of water. My suggestion would be to put a large bottle of water or some other nonalcoholic/ not caffeinated choices in the mini bar for purchase. I would have happily paid for water or sparkling water so that I did not have to leave my room again. The person at the desk at 11:20 on Thursday night was rude and dismissive towards me. This person represented your brand so poorly.

I was there for a company meeting. I like the idea of the hotel, but the execution was not quite there. I also had a sink that did not drain properly. I informed the front desk staff on the first day, but it was not corrected before I left after 3 nights.

We spent our 11th anniversary here and we loved our stay, the art was amazing, the room, spa and gym was really nice too! The area had lots to offer within walking distance and we never moved our car the whole time. It was nice to travel only 1.5 from home to experience such a unique experience. We will definitely be back!
