I think this is a pretty good hotel. Next to the convention center - good hotel for business travelers. My window had a beautiful view of the river and the sunrises were amazing!! Good toiletries/products. The room was spacious, the bathroom recently redone, new fixtures, etc. The sitting area was not great - decent table and chairs with an uncomfortable sofa - but it was functional... The breakfast was standard - good MTO eggs.
The fitness center was a joke. There are 2 treadmills, 1 elliptical, and 1 cycle. You'd have better luck just going outside for a walk/run along the river, which is gorgeous! Also, the restaurant connected to the hotel had sub-par food - but its decent for a drink.
The lobby was full of tables and chairs which made having meetings during the convention very easy. The Marriott across the street is much more impressive decor wise - but not as functional to get a group of 4-6 people seated close enough to converse.
