We had a great meal last night at the Donatello and realized we were not able to drive back home (50 miles) without falling asleep at the wheel. I've learned not to try anymore as it will get you dead. We can't stay at anything that's not upper class (yes, I'm a prude) so we checked on availability at the InterContinental. AAA rate was $87!!! WHAT????? Yes, $87.
The place is what you expect for this chain: nice, safe, clean and upper class. I don't think you could go wrong here, so if it's near where you need to be then stay here!
One note: If you take anything out of the room refrigerator (even if you don't drink/eat it) the computer puts it on your tab. We moved some things out to put our leftovers in it and sure enough those items were itemized on our bill. The front desk girl laughed and said it happened all the time and promptly took them off.
