Normally I don't like staying in "full service" hotels, which seem to charge for eveything. So I was a bit apprehensive to book a stay in this hotel,which was mandated by our management (since our supplier had a discounted rate there). However in the end my stay turned out to be better than I expected.
We stayed in the Tower room. My wife joined me a few days into the trip, so I was hoping that this stay would live up to her (somewhat higher) expectations - it mostly did. The room was clean, the bed pretty comfortable. The pillows were typical hotel fare - synthetic, soft to the touch but hard to sleep on. In the rooms there is a mini-fridge (fortnately empty of mini-bar goodies), useful to store the leftovers of last night's dinner, but no microwave. There is a coffeemaker, with coffe and tea condiments, though to make tea without coffee flavor, you will need to resort to some trickery, such as removing filter-holder and the pot lid. In the morning the hotel has a free coffee cart in the lobby, with very good, Starbucks-quality coffee.
The TV channel selecton was fairly good, though as in a typical "full service" hotel, every time you turn on the TV, you are presented with the Pay-Per-View ads, before getting to a viewable channel.
The parking spaces seem a bit undersized, but the parking is free, and right in front of the building. The hotel staff are all very friendly, from the housekeeping to front desk. Although they charge extra for a room upgrade, which includes a turn-down service and bottled water, as well as a higher-floor room with a better vew, the rooms are essentially the same as the ones below, and if you ask, the front desk staff will give you bottles of water for free.
Overall, it was a pleasant, uneventful stay.
