I just finished a 3 night stay at the hotel and was very happy with it on many levels. As noted, the rooms are modern (the iMac concept was sweet (doubles as both a TV and of course internet source). The service was also excellent (reception and the restaurant), and as many have noted, it's got a great view of the river, especially at night. I have seen some reviews complaining about price/room size, etc. I bought as a flight/hotel package so not sure of my price breakdown, but the size room was fine, albeit a bit cozy (but how much space do you need?) The only layout design I didn't like so much was the bathroom, but if you are worried about that, you have bigger issues!
Overall, I really enjoyed my stay. The only little issue one might have is that you don't exactly walk out the door to the middle of the action, but there is lots of transit available. I am a walker, but it's only about a 20 minute hike to get to the west end sites, and about 30 or so to get right into the centre (i.e. George Square). Otherwise, a very good experience! They are going through some renovations (that should be completed in March I believe), but they seem to be about done and didn't have an impact on my stay.
