The public areas here are great - huge lobby, nice coffee shop that isn't a Starbucks, thankfully. There are public computers to use, and you will do so, because the WiFi is only free in the lobby. My room had a nice view and updated furnishings, but it was a good thing I was staying alone becuase the bathroom design lacked privacy. It was a sliding glass door that had sound and light leakage - as if there as no door at all. If you're staying with someone and don't want to share all your hygiene habits, make sure you ask for a room with a regular bathroom door (avoid corner rooms?). In-room fridge was great though, and it was quiet at the end of the hall. My other complaint has to do with the way front desk staff handled a registration snafu that appeared to be their error. I was asked to check out of my room and move to another hotel at $100+ more. Maybe other travelers can brook that sort of expense and inconvenience but I had been there 3 days already and had received confirmation for a reservation for 4 days, which is what I wanted. That said, the other staff were phenomenal. One woman did a lot of running back and forth between coffee shop and restaurant (which was really good for a hotel resto, by the way) and was unfailingly cheerful and helpful. Finally, if you're a snacker, you may want to bring food with you, as anything besides the hotel Resto will require a walk and/or planning (nearby convenience and other stores can be closed on Sunday and/or early Sat afternoons).
