The good news is that the suites are well arranged and have lots of room, and there seems to be adequate soundproofing (we did have a minor issue one night with the amplified sound from across the street coming through the bedroom window at 2 AM). The bad news is that you can't get to your room if you have the misfortune to return to the hotel in the evening when they have a lot of events using the ballrooms. First, we could not even get to the parking structure because we got stuck behind all the parked cars waiting for valets which had completely filled the portico you need to drive through to get to the structure entrance. Then we were told there was no parking available in the structure anyways since it was all being used for valet parking, so we had to wait for the valets to clear enough cars so that we could exit through the driveway which crosses a driveway the valets use to get to the structure, another nightmare, and drive down the street to the employee lot. Once in, we stopped to complain to an individual who had a badge designating him as the "Sales Manager" who seemed to think we were nuts because he hadn't noticed any problem and "we have 4 valets." So if you're not actually staying there in connection with a specific event at the hotel, plan your timing carefully.
