The decor and tone of the hotel just aren't the sort of thing I care for. That being said, it was very clean and everyone on staff I encountered was friendly and helpful. The room was large but cinderblock walls leave me totally cold. As do the retro furnishings. But the linens and toiletries were lux and a New York Times is delivered to your door so thumbs up for all of that. There is one of those single-cup coffee makers which I'm sure are very sanitary but I much prefer a small coffeepot.
The hotel provides a business center which is very handy for me as I don't travel with a laptop. The workout room is well equipped. The spa received some sort of award for "best new spa" or something along those lines but I can't imagine why. The facility is clean but small and doesn't have a whirlpool or sauna. However, the massage I received was outstanding.
The concierge tipped me off on one restaurant to avoid and the suggested Thai alternative on Main Street was great and within easy walking distance.
