This hotel is centrally located at a location that is happening and also was convenient for a conference where I was presenting-- good for work and play in short. My room was lovely and had a sweet view of the circle. The beds were comfy and wifi is free. The staff was very helpful and prompt. Except when the morning coffee bar ran out of complimentary coffee. That took 20 minutes to resolve, which hurts when you need coffee and are deciding between going across the street to Starbucks or seeing if they actually refill the pot. But they were very sweet about it.
The only real issue was that through a design (or installation) flaw you couldn't shut the bathroom door (it gets stuck on the toilet). This wasn't a huge issue because I was there alone. But then there is no shower curtain (I was told they're being installed now), so when I showered the water went all over the place. I booked through a discount service, so maybe I got a crappy bathroom for that reason? The staff said there was nothing they could do about these issues but brought me extra towels quickly. Heated tiles on the bathroom floor and nice fluffy towels made up for it.
The bar and restaurant are both happening spots, it seemed. The bar was really hopping on the weekend nights, and has outdoor seating with heat lamps and blankets in the fall so that was fun. The restaurant had very good food, good service and also had outdoor seating. The rooms somehow remain quiet despite the lively area downstairs, so you can also choose to relax in peace.
I would definitely stay there again. Despite the strange issues in my room it felt luxurious, the hotel was lively, and I enjoyed being there, especially as an escape from my conference duties. It was really an oasis.
