Stayed twice in November 2009, for 5 nights total. First stay was a corner room, second a standard room.
Both rooms were a good size, and very well outfitted. Both had a small but well set up work desk, and a comfy Eames chair. Bed was pleasantly firm, with great linens. The corner room was slightly smaller, but had excellent views out two window walls (one partially blocked by an overly-large TV). The regular room additionally had sliding glass doors between the bed and bath, allowing one to lounge in the tub while watching TV.
Note that south-facing rooms look over the interesting parts of the city, while views from some north and west rooms are blocked by nearby towers.
On the negative side the corner room did have very stinky drains (I had to keep the bathroom door shut), while the ceiling lights in the other room were extremely bright - switching them off unfortunately turns off all other rooms lights, too.
The location was excellent, being outside the busiest areas but a short walk to tourist attractions and local neighborhoods.
Restaurant and bar predictably expensive, but coffee counter in the lobby has great pastries for a reasonable price.
Service was superb, and friendly without being overly-familiar.
This is without a doubt one of the best hotels in the city, although one has to question whether it is conscionable to spend this much money on a hotel room.
