First of all, this hotel is a knockout. It's got style, a cool eclectic look, modern but with funkily out-of-place traditional touches. Seriously, every time I turned a corner in the hotel I wanted to say, "I like what you've done with the place!". My room (even with an unfortunate view of the neighboring parking lot) was probably the nicest, most interestingly designed room I've had in a very long time. I sense the staff are proud, and they should be. Special recognition should be given to the lunch and dinner menus at the in-house Gallerie Bistro restaurant.... Classy, first rate, healthy, creative, very French, and worth the trip all by itself. I was in town for a convention and this hotel rises high above the typical convention hotel experience. I wish I had another excuse to visit. p.s. I didn't use the pool/spa, but it looked great!
