I stayed at this hotel 2 nights during a conference. I stayed in two different rooms because I did not stay contiguous nights.
The check-in was quick and efficient. I arrived on a Sunday evening and they offered a coupon for a free glass of house wine and there was a prix fixe dinner menu in the restaurant. Alas, by the time I got to the restaurant they were no longer serving dinner. I enjoyed the wine at the bar, and had a snack of salad and chicken & waffles there. Both were quite good and well-priced.
The rooms were both on the small side but well-designed and did not feel cramped for a single person. (I presume they would give you a somewhat larger room if you had two people because the room would have been small for a couple.) The toiletries were EO, nice stuff. All fixtures in the room functioned properly and the rooms were very clean.
The fitness center is small but it was adequate. There is a rack of dumbbells, 2 treadmills, and an elliptical. They have towels and water glasses, and a water cooler.
I had several meals at the hotel as part of the conference, and all were excellent. If the conference meals are any indicator of the quality of the restaurant, I would expect the restaurant is fabulous. I plan to try it next time I'm in the area.
I would definitely stay here again.
