This place was amazing from the get go. I walk through the door to see a stunning marble decor and two gentlemen in uniformed fashionably impressive suits. The hotel is brand new so it's hard to not be impressed, but one of my odd favorites was the elevator. The buttons were responsive in the fact that you pushed for your floor and the doors closed right then and there. No annoying delay. On top of that it talks to you in pleasant female voice.
My room was excellent overall and the staff was friendly and helpful. Being I was traveling on business I did have a few gripes including the fact that the business center was not set up yet. Also, the wireless internet signal was less than consistent and was even down at times. For people who have longer stays and stock up on meals it would be nice if the mini-fridges had freezer compartments. I also was longing for a hot tub. However, overall I was remarkably impressed with my stay and was rather upset I had to leave on the account of my marketing department not booking my entire stay at that hotel. My final verdict? Highly highly recommended!
