we stayed here for a weekend in december. it was a beautiful hotel in a great location. it was close enough that we were able to walk and see the nutcracker at the auditorium theatre. i love walking int he city! the evening wine hour is a nice little added bonus. especially for the great price we paid on expedia. they also have a wonderful pool on the top and the kids were quite impressed. they even gave all the kids a little bag with fun toys and things for them to do. it's nice when children are thought of and made felt welcome in such nice hotels. i will definitely go back to this hotel in the future.
