My husband and I stayed here for three days in mid December. The staff was really helpful and welcoming and the deluxe room very good sized. We had a package that included a sumptuous daily breakfast with both hot and cold foods that was the same every day, but plentiful, fresh and delicious.
Previously, the hotel was an old newspaper building and is quite oddly laid out in spots. One takes an elevator 1/2 a floor to get to the beautiful, clean spa (quite a treat on a cold, blustery day), but still the elevator is a silly experience. The rooms need a bit of an ergonomic reboot. Drawers in our closet wouldn't open because the closet door hit the bed.
A great experience but make sure you get a room that is away from "the close" as a fairly continuous parade of revelers and drunken singers use it at night.
