The hotel is beautiful and our experience with the staff was pleasant. We did not visit the restaurant or bar so I cannot comment on them. The positives were that the views were great from the 30th floor, the rooms were clean, the bed was comfortable, and the concierge was helpful.
The negatives include being outrageously charged for valet parking ($59/night), bottled water ($8), and WiFi ($15/day). I would think that when you are paying north of $250 per night for a room they could include a bottle of water and WiFi. Sticking it to you for these items doesn't feel good and kind of ruined it for us. There is a small fridge in the room but no room to put anything in it as it is stocked with mini bar items which you are charged for if you move them.
Finally, the hotel is located in an area with a lot of homeless people and walking around at night was a little scary for me and my wife. This is not the hotels fault, I just think it might be helpful for some people making a decision on where to stay.
