You would think a hotel with a great location in a fine city would be extra sharp. This one is not. You pay a premium for a larger (370 sq ft, not THAT large) room, and we had a very comfortable bed, not a sleep number bed like other reviews state. When we checked in on a Saturday night, the front desk had three long lines. There were five weddings, and several events going on, so the lobby was extremely crowded and noisy. However, our room and floor were very quiet. We blissfully heard nothing all night long. Sunday breakfast buffet was a big disappointment, very expensive considering the French toast tasted like shoe leather, the bacon was barely cooked. Parking is also expensive ($17/day). WiFi is free but spotty reception. There is no on-demand/pay per view movie channel. The bathroom is smallish but nicely appointed, and was clean. The elevators ran slow because of all the weddings and events going on. It was difficult to adjust the room temperature. We like a cool room at night, and we were never able to get the room cool enough. The thermostat is outdated. We could characterize this hotel as serviceable, more expensive than most, and less value than most. The location is the best thing about it.
