Fabulous 8.8 From 131 reviews

Exceptional 10.0
Great Niche Hotel
Couldn’t find a downtown hotel room so stayed at The Annex. Great funky neighborhood, well appointed room and super comfortable. Easy access to the TYV.
Duncan, us1 night business trip
Very good 8.0
Great location and great rooms. Very artistic!
The stay was indeed great. A lot of effort was put into the cleanliness as the place was spotless. I liked the record player in the room. That was a nice touch. Check in was not ok. It relies too much on app automation and was very self serve. This place isn’t cheap so after long travel to get to the place and the first thing they say is “you didn’t check in via your mobile device, here’s a computer; start typing in your info” was less than ok. Amazing art everywhere though.
David, ca2 night trip
Good 6.0
Hip but LOUD.
The check in process was very confusing it was supposed to occur remotely but their online site wasn’t working properly. It was also extremely loud, I was kept awake by doors slamming both at night and in the morning. Weirdly there was also no moisturizer provided so you’ll need to bring your own. That seems a BASIC amenity for a hotel this price. When the “hosts” were texted they took a bit to reply but were friendly and happy to help.
