This hotel is a little bit above our usual price ceiling, but we needed to be downtown, and it was easily the best alternative. The service, room quality, breakfast buffet, lounge areas, and everything else were as good as we've found anywhere. Utterly irreproachable. There is no pool, but downtown hotels rarely have one, so this didn't disappoint us. One thing I particularly liked about this hotel is that they don't nickle and dime you to death, as downtown hotels often do. The room had a small fridge (at no extra charge) that was NOT loaded with hideously expensive "honor bar" items, and thus usable for fruit, juice, etc; the breakfast buffet was included in the room price, and their indoor parking is FREE, a rarity among downtown hotels, in my experience. Pounce!
