Stayed there as part of a convention - which is what helps get it above average because the rate I got it for was considerably less than a typical midtown property. That put me in a better mood to start. If I'd paid full rate they'd get an average.
Most of the 'objections' I have are for downtown hotels in general, not for this one in particular, so I think you have to be fair and not pick on that.
Just a few odd annoyances that really would have been nice... like an in-room fridge, a publicly-accessible microwave somewhere. The only real negative I had to put up was that the entire square side of the hotel is closed and boarded up for renovation, and I received no warning from reservations about that. Couldn't even get in the building or find an entrance, had to drive around several blocks and made three attempts to find the alternate entrance. Parking was also not clearly indicated exactly where it was at - the website is inaccurate. That surprise was unnecessary.
Surprisingly noisy from hall noise, didn't expect that.
In-house restaurants a little pricey but very good. Lots of alternatives in walking distance. Walking distance to Rock & Roll hall of fame. Not too difficult for interstate access.
