My husband and I stayed here for 3 nights in July 2012. The hotel looks really cool; the architecture is neat. We were greeted warmly and helped very well by the receptionists. Our room was large, but it was more minimalistic than I thought (very plain), and I was also a little disappointed by some of the wear and tear in the room (marks on the walls, chipped corners, etc.). However, we had no problems with our room and especially liked the bathrooms (finally a "North American" shower door). We enjoyed the wonderful breakfasts and the huge variety of food. We also enjoyed the pool and outdoors one afternoon. Overall, we enjoyed our time at this hotel, although it is more expensive than other hotels of comparable quality.
The parking was not an issue, and we liked that it was a little outside of the city-center. You can see the leaning tower of Pisa perfectly from the parking area; it's really neat. We had a rental car and drove to the center. But just a warning - vehicles are not permitted in certain areas! We saw the sign but couldn't get out of the area and ended up with a 160 Euro ticket in the mail 10 months later! There is not as much to see/do in Pisa as in Florence, so we drove to Lucca one evening and to the Mediterranean coast (Livorgno and Viareggio) one day.
