The hotel is clean, the staff were great, the rooms are huge with a great layout to allow separation between the living room and the sleeping room. I wouldn't hesitate staying again and recommend it to others. I like the touch of having the vending and ice machines down by the elevators and not creating any noise by any of the rooms.
I do have two gotcha's though. The first concerns most hotel's a/c that is right in the room. Stayed there during a 30C hot streak and the a/c basically had to work often. The problem when trying to sleep was the thermostat making a clicking sound, then followed with the a/c turning on. As our room was right above the entrance way ( noise of people coming and going and smoking area ) we couldn't leave the window open. Solution was to set the fan such that it runs constantly and therefore no sound level difference as it cuts in and out. This is nothing against the hotel, just typical a/c in hotel rooms it seems. If you are a sound sleeper you wouldn't notice this. First night it bothered me, but second night once I had it figured out slept amazingly as the bed, linen and pillows are all top rate.
The second gotcha concerned the free morning breakfast. When we got down there everything was picked over and the windows all closed up such that the temperature in the room was uncomfortable. The attendant was busy washing up dishes and trying to catch up to what was probably a rush of people who had come down, but for us there was no clean tables, picked over food items and just too darn hot. We decided to head out to one of the local places.
