Not a bad location on main street Colombia (though the area is returning to being empty, lots of places closing up).
Got a good rate, but you have to pay for everything else, for example bottled water is 2.50, bag of nuts 4.00. Normal for a Sheraton I guess, but not sustainable given the amount of hotels nearby. Restaurant (main street, one of two) ok food but overpriced again. Do people really still charge for Wifi nowadays - this place does, 9.95$/day.
Service was a little 'sterile' on check-in, trying to be too business like.
The building is lovely, but I felt the inside was an uncomfortable mish-mash of old and new, a clean but boring renovation. No bath - shower only. Everything was clean.
Corridors are far too noisy - the doors block out no noise so you hear everything going on around you.
The upstairs bar with panoramic 'stunning' views was basically a balcony with views of offices, but hey, you can't bash them for trying. Pretty much older hotel guests only there when I stayed.
Valet parking is $18/night - there is a municipal park in an alley just to the Easy which was supposed to be a max of $10/night though I only ended up paying $3, was free at weekends too. If you are capable of walking 100 yards, I'd use that and save the cash.
In sum - sound business hotel though not competitive - friends stayed and the Marriott next door and that was better all round (room size/facilities/price). They need to realise that it's the extras/service that makes a good hotel, not the building or brand.
