I think it has all been said -- great value, great location, great staff, great amenities. We stayed here for 3 nights in late December and early January (over New Year's Eve). Enjoyed the indoor pool & hot tub and the spacious 1-bedroom suite (living room with kitchen, separate bedroom with adjacent bath). Modern design, everything in good working condition, room was quiet, etc. Two (minor?) things did detract from our stay: the elevator requires a room key to operate but the card readers in the elevator consistently had problems with our room keys and the keys of other guests. It actually forced me to think twice about using the (slow) elevators. The other issue is that the free high-speed internet terminals went out for about 24 hours; this was apparently the result of the bad weather but it really creates a problem in this modern era when we all need internet to check travel plans, do airline check-ins, etc. The staff was made aware of the problems but were apparently helpless to offer remedies. These two issues were minor in our overall stay -- we'd happily stay here again and highly recommend the hotel. I just wanted to be fair/objective in pointing out 'room for improvement' .
