The comments everyone else has made are accurate--its a great hotel with a few things that could improve. Overall, I'd stay there again if they offered another Living Social (which is how we found out about the place in the first place) or a Groupon.
Service--very friendly, they open the door for you upon arrival and were very courteous the entire stay.
Interior Decor--modern, clean, very nice.
The Bistro--the LS deal gave us two complimentary cocktail tickets. We used them on a Friday night in the bar and it was excellent. They have a late night happy hour and we also bought some delicious Lamb meatballs ($3) and fancy fries ($3). Very good. The breakfast was very good also. (more on that in the con section below)
The Bed and Shower--both very nice.
The Location--Couldn't have a better location, both on the water, right off the Morrison Bridge, and in downtown just a few blocks from all the shopping.
Noise--streetside rooms are pretty loud
Outdated heating system/fan--pretty loud in the room, though I did turn it on to drown out the street noise
Breakfast--I found this a little rude. The LS coupon includes breakfast, but in reality you get a $10 voucher for breakfast per person. I saw on the menu that most items were about $10 or a little more, and coffee was $3 a cup (!!!!!!). I decided to brew our coffee in the room and take it to breakfast because I didn't want to be charged $6 for coffee for both of us. This should be INCLUDED in the breakfast and the LS coupon should be more explicit in this voucher program.
Parking--About $25, a little pricey for staying at a hotel. I have stayed at hotels all over the world, and many nice places in NY, Chicago and Toronto charge $24 or a little more for parking--this place shouldn't, especially because there is ample street parking surrounding it, the only problem is that it is metered.
Overall, I'd stay there again, it was a great time.
