Went down to the city for a girls weekend. I asked for early check in and was able to be in my room by 1:15pm. The staff at the front desk was very pleasant and very efficient. Room was clean and very nice. Can't beat the location though. Close to great restaurants and events. Cabs easy to get. We really enjoyed the separate seating area from the beds. Nice not to have to sit on beds and watch TV or talk. I have spent many nights in different hotels around the city and this hotel was one of the quietest I stayed in. NO other room noise and not noise from the room upstairs. It was solid. Had a very nice quiet sleep.
Just a couple of things to keep in mind. This is a BUSY hotel on the weekends it shares the same main floor as the Residence Inn so there is a lot of people milling around downstairs. You have to get ice out of the coolers in the lobby. Not very convenient when you have to wait for the elevators and then get down to the lobby and have to wait for ice because there is none. Lastly, the free breakfast was so crowded and there was no food left (except for a couple English muffins at 9:45am on a Sunday) we just ended up going to the Einstein's bagel that was connected to the hotel for breakfast.
Overall, I would recommend this hotel. It is priced right and it is clean and again great location.
