Stayed here three nights on a business trip in May 2013. I must admit I spent very little time in the hotel as my meetings were offsite so other than grabbing a drink at the bar and watching a little late night tv, most of my time was outside. I do have a few brief comments.
Location: Good location...very close to Union Station and only about a 10-15 minute taxi ride from the airport. There are a couple of Irish Pubs directly around the corner from the hotel and Union Station offers a number of restaurants.
Check-In was quick and easy. The hotel has a very nice lobby and bar area. No complaints there.
High speed internet is available in the rooms, but I was this is the first hotel I can ever recall seeing different pricing options for different download speeds. The base hookup was like $10 per day and then you could opt for a higher internet speed for like $20 a day. That is crazy and I feel like many of these higher scale hotels simply rip off customers with this. I can stay at a holiday Inn and get free wifi, but most nicer hotels charge high fees.
No complaints about the room. It was clean, the bed was nice and I was pleased with the bathroom. It was nice and large and plenty of counterspace for all your items. The shower was also good sized and ample hot water was not a problem.
Overall, I was pleased with my stay and would definitely stay again if I'm in town.
