This hotel is not brand-new, rather it is a remodeled Holiday Inn. That said, aside from the elevator-inspection certificates, you'd almost never know its past.
Check-in was super easy and as a long-time Starwood member I was upgraded to the club floor and parking was cut from $10 to $5. Of the two issues I had, one was with the original room. It reeked of cigarette smoke. I went downstairs and was given a different room on the same floor and all was ok. The room is modern, with a large tiled shower area (no tub), nice furnishings, flat-screen TV, ipod-dock radio, and a tall, very comfortable (not too soft, not too firm) bed. I wish the pillows had a bit more firmness, but they did the job well.
The Club floor has a happy hour each night and I was able to enjoy some wine and snacks before heading out to eat. I was happy that, when I asked about walking over to my restaurant, the staffer I spoke with didn't try to upsell me to stay and eat on property. That's a bonus in my book.
My complaint about the room is that the air conditioner is VERY LOUD. It gives away the cheaper history of the building (or, at least, its age), as many other Sheraton/Westin/W properties I've been in have had far quieter A/C units.
In the morning I hit the well-equipped fitness center (24-hour access) and was very happy with the assortment of equipment, stretching areas, etc.
The continental breakfast on the Club floor was great, with fresh coffee, fruit, good pastries (not cheap, overly-rich ones), lots of Kashi cereal products, and various newspapers.
Check out was a breeze and I was on my way. Definitely would stay here again, even though there are hotels closer to my office in Yonkers, NY (including a Tarrytown Sheraton that is always booked).
