I went here to go to the Origins convention. The vast majority of the staff were competent and friendly. The people at the check-in desk were polite and helpful, the maintenance people for the rooftop pool and hot tub made sure the hot tub was pleasantly hot, and even the security staff were kind.
However, the only exception was the cleaning staff. They knocked on the door early in the morning to clean the room. Frankly, I don't think I should have to put a do not disturb sign on the door to get a full night's sleep, but it's necessary at this hotel. Also, if they "skipped" over a room, they didn't clean it promptly (despite being given many hours during which to do so).
In general, though, I loved the hotel. The room was attractive and clean on arrival, and they gave away more free things than I ever saw a hotel give away before. There were free apples in the bowls next to the check-in desk each morning, oranges in a bowl in the fitness room, and free spring water (individual bottles and cooler) in the fitness room too.
Be sure to visit the roof hot tub. The pool tends to be more than a little chilly, but the hot tub's just right. Overall, this hotel's nice for anyone looking for a quiet, friendly place to get some rest - so long as you use the "do not disturb" sign.
