This is a somewhat iconic hotel that has been renovated recently. Nice lobby and nice rooms with good furnishings and comfortable beds. It's ideally located for the Convention Center, and has a pleasant, friendly staff. Some commentators have remarked on the shape of the windows, which are arched a bit on the outside, but I don't see any problem. They are 3/4 the width of the room and 2/3 of the height, so what on earth is wrong with that? There is a smallish and not terribly inviting pool adjacent to a large fifth floor deck. It gets sun in the morning and shade in the afternoon and the deck has a substantial smoking area; if that's a problem you'll have to shift about to avoid the smokers. There is plenty of room for a larger pool, which would be an improvement, but perhaps there are some structural problems with additional weight. The hotel's footprint is what it is, but the deck is easily five times larger than the pool. All-in-all, I liked the place for where it was and what it was. It's not the Biltmore, nor the Phoenician, nor the Hyatt at Gainey Ranch, all of which I've stayed at in the past and all of which are far nicer. But for a downtown hotel within a couple of blocks of the Convention Center, it's just fine.
