The location of the hotel can't be beat. And the public areas of the hotel are very well done. It's an elegant place, without doubt.
If you can, opt for access to the club lounge, which is a very relaxing place to unwind. It's one of the best decorated spaces I've seen in a long time. The food in the lounge, however, leaves something to be desired. So, if you're on a diet, maybe that's a good thing.
I found my room, on a Starwood Preferred Gold level floor, to be rather drab and uninteresting. It was comfortable enough, but also very plain. There was some mold between the tiles in the bathroom, which, like my room, didn't look like it had been renovated in quite some time.
