This hotel was exactly what I thought it would be. The location was everything,due to the football game weekend. Everything within walking distance, even by indoor skywalk. We stayed in one of the train car rooms, which are well appointed and comfortable, even quiet unless a real train is passing through, but I found that to be kind of neat.The hotel was undergoing some renovation, but you barely knew it. Dinner and drinks at the hotel bar, Pullman's, was convenient and pretty decent. The staff we encountered were mostly friendly and helpful.I do think the property is a bit pricey, but I kind of expected and planned for that.( I made reservations in January for a December weekend) I'm sure the weekend's activities created quite a demand, hence, a little price gouging is probably expected. Overall, a nice stay.
