Overall, an enjoyable stay. Was given a room high up with a bay view, but it had an eight-person conference table in the middle of the living space?!? I seriously thought my room key had been mis-coded to a shared conference room space until I stumbled upon the beautiful bedroom. Silly me, next time I'll request a "no conference room table" room in the reservation comments section : ) That's what I get for arriving early. I did manage to swap the room out for a more proper room where I was able to conduct a more relaxed business meeting, unfortunately it turned out to be a room on the 2nd floor overlooking the hotel driveway...payback me thinks.
If you're not familiar with this property, it's a combination office building hotel, but don't be alarmed, it actually works well. The complex lobby (connected to the hotel) is white marble and very rich in appearance. For the carnivore set, there's a Shula's Steak House on-site. Free parking in the attached structure is a nice bonus as is the shopping mall across the street.
