This place was a let down. We were very sore from the rock hard beds ... and I like a firm mattress. Our room had a nice view of the atrium area, but that is about all that stood out about the room ... quite average otherwise. In fact, the bathroom had a very cheap, almost make-shift, lighting feature that was little more than a plastic grid used to "block" or diffuse flourescent tubes. I was a little appalled that the plastic grid allowed guest to view some rather large holes in the walls surrounding the electrical elements and water (?) pipes. Not very appealing. We were not happy that online services were soley geared toward business travelers ... too many hoops to jump through to get wireless access to quickly check email or whatnot. The exercise room was outstanding, the "heated" pool was very cold ... too cold to use, the hot tub was rather small ... too small/intimate for comfortable useage with strangers. Overall, the place did not seem very luxurious for a luxury hotel ... it seemed overpriced and overrated. We actually cut our stay short by a day because of the lack of comfort.
