Stayed a couple nights to see the Senators win the Eastern Conference title.
Pros: Gorgeous lobby and elegant dining area. Rooms are very spacious, a good 25% larger than a standard 3-star hotel. Comfortable bed, firm mattress. Large bathroom with instant hot water and great shower pressure. Good soundproofing - I never heard anything and even on the third floor, street traffic was reduced to a distant hum. Efficient check-in/out with predominantly friendly staff. Free parking was appreciated. Gorgeous restaurant with delicious food, terrific service and reasonable prices. Did not try the fitness center/pool/spa but they looked pleasant. Easy access to the I-81 and within walking distance of all areas of interest in downtown Binghamton, while away from the noise.
Cons: Lacking a proper office chair and/or a comfortable evening chair. Work desk is tiny with a hard chair with no recline. A more diverse in-room pillow selection would be nice (all four were large and thick). Room decor needs to be updated to be brought in line with the rest of the hotel, as well as the tube TVs and more updated lighting. Proper in-room drinking glasses would be another nice touch. Vending machines were all empty.
Tip: You will want an upper floor in the back for the best view of the river. As of May 2011, they are renovating the top (10th) floor.
Overall, a great stay. I'll be back.
