Great hotel centrally located in downtown within walking distance of most downtown attractions (museums, arena, restaurants). Although it was summer, one can appreciate that the hotel is connected to several downtown buildings via elevated walkway for comfort in the winter. The hotel has a decent sized indoor pool and sauna area, along with a nice work out facility. The 1 bedroom suite was very large and and had two seperate living areas with desks, tvs, beds, etc. The bathroom was large an included a jacuzzi tub and seperate shower. The concierge lounge was a bit basic and undersized for the hotel. The crowd easily overwhelmed the place for breakfast. However, the breakfast foods, coffee machine and staff were all great. The hotel staff was very helpful and friendly and were willing to go the extra mile on requests. The hotel bar was a bit on the small side and the drinks were pretty pricey for what you got, but not completely out of line for a downtown hotel. My family of 5 had a very enjoyable 6 night stay at the hotel. Plenty of room and access to local attractions and dining.
