I have hosted annual conferences on both a regional and national level for many years. First the hotel offers excellent service. The people are extremely well trained and courteous from the AV staff, banquet, front desk..... The one day charge for conference attendees is a great concept and includes continuous breaks from 7am to 5 pm and the luncheon meal. It is nice not be charged for every small service rendered. The hotel is conveniently located to downtown. Being a refurbished grand hotel, the room dimensions are very variable depending on where the room is located. However, they are all well appointed.
