I was here for a night for a wedding, booked in an Executive Level King room. They allowed me to check in a bit early at 2pm so that I could take a shower and get changed before the wedding. They also gave me a couple of oatmeal cookies, a free welcome drink voucher, and a free breakfast voucher as a Platinum member.
The room was spacious, and had an awe-inspiring view of the parking lot from the 7th floor. Ok, so the view wasn't that great, but it's located a bit north of downtown and is by an intersection of two highways so you can't expect a whole lot. The furniture is nice, and they also included free wifi. The downside was that the bathroom was tiny with barely enough room for the shower/tub, the toilet, and the sink.
It's a bit away from downtown and getting there from 35N the first time was not the most trivial thing, but I think it's a nice hotel that really seems to take care of their customers.
