Bwog Recommendations:

Hogan offers an appealing alternative to EC for seniors with excellent lottery numbers. It offers most of the same amenities as EC and is arguably in a more convenient location. Unlike EC, all of the rooms are singles, ranging from reasonably sized to very large.


  • “More convenient location than EC, pretty much all the same amenities, and you don’t have to deal with EC craziness when you go home.”
  • “Room size varies between the different suites from decently sized singles to massive singles. Either way, you win.”
  • “Common area is huge, and makes it super easy to host people if you want to.”
  • “There’s only one bathroom in the suite, but the bathroom and shower are split up so it’s totally fine.”
