This hotel seems to think very highly of itselt but has a ways to go. The Sleep Number beds are not like those you could buy...they have what feels like a wooden (think 2x4 boards) frame around the mattress, so sitting on the edge of the bed is like perching on a skinny piece of wood. Needless to say, this is not comfy! The beds also tend to readjust themselves throughout the night, so if you set it at one number, you may awaken to something quite different. My least favorite moment at this hotel was on Saturday morning. The hotel has a table set up adjacent to the front desk, upon which is either a coffee urn or a water dispenser, depending on the time of day. On Saturday morning, I went to get a cup of coffee, but the only thing on the table was a stack of cups and some napkins. Thinking the coffee was being prepared, I asked and was told the "waitress in the restaurant would take care of" me. When I asked the waitress for a cup of coffee, she asked me if I wanted to buy one. It seems there is no free coffee in the lobby on weekends. Neither are there any newspapers, although I know this is common at most hotels. I felt the lack of coffee on weekends was very cheap and not too classy. The bathrooms are also rather marginal. There is NO water pressure in the shower (which is plumbed for someone who plays for the NBA) and the tubs have some sort of coating that seems to be peeling off. The hot tub/spa was closed during part of my stay "for the safety of hotel guests". Not sure what that means, but it doesn't sound good. One evening there was a wedding reception taking place and the entire lobby area was commandeered by the wedding guests.
