We went for the top level suite and what a let down. FIrstly, we were adamant about non-smoking as I have severe allergies and despite non-smoking floors and four emails back and forth we had a smoking room with ashtrays everywhere. They let us try two other rooms all smoking rooms and just as bad. The carpets were worn and the room could use a good update and thorough cleaning. The space online appeared much bigger than in real life
On the plus it was well located, excellent restaurant and large comfortable beds. EVERYTHING was a charge. They said free Wi Fi but it is not in your room. So you need to lug your computer down to the noisy busy bar to use it. You can not even make 800 calls from your room without a charge. They say parking available for about 30 spaces of 218 rooms and then no one to help with your bags. When we got hit with a $15 parking charge (no advised as such) that was the kicker.
The 10th floor view was of deteriorated roof tops and there was puddles of water in the hall. Two elevators with a capacity of 5 people for 218 rooms.
The other hotels in the chain look much more upscale. For a one night business meeting this might be fine but I would think twice before returning.
