We drew the Roosevelt in the Hotwire lottery and I was distinctly worried when I read some of the Trip Advisor reviews. However it's only fair to judge the hotel based on how much we paid which was not a lot. The lobby is very grand and would be a good place for meetings if it wasn't so busy although there does seem to be good seating on the mezzanine level. Four star so far. We had what they describe as a "cosy" room with a shower on an upper floor. The shower was quite narrow and I banged myself twice on the protruding soap dish. Otherwise it was clean and functional with Bath and Bodyworks amenities. The room was in good repair but honestly it's not really right to describe the Hotwire rooms as four star. The bed was reasonably comfortable but there were no luxurious touches such as mattress toppers and there was a window aircon. Since it was freezing outside this didn't bother us as the heating was very powerful but the sound of rain dripping on the box was a bit annoying. The biggest gripe was the size of the room. There was about 1-2 feet clearance around the bed. If I had paid 250 dollars for this room I would have given it two stars at best.
Depending on the price I would be happy to overnight again in this hotel but the cosy rooms are really too small for a long stay. The staff were very helpful and gave us an early check in but there were lots of people waiting for rooms.
Do check your bill before departure. Ours had food items we had not ordered. Internet is via AT&T, expensive at 14-15 dollars per day, and slow.
