We were almost worried, staying downtown and getting this hotel for the price we were. In comparison to other hotels near by we were paying half if not more of what their rates were.
When we arrived we valeted our vehicle (pretty much mandatory for parking around here). The lobby is very swanky. They still have the old safe (the building used to be a bank) in the lobby. Check in staff was very helpful. They gave us area maps with restaurants and other points of interest.
The rooms were nice, clean, modern. Very oddly shaped though. No tub only a shower which wasn't an issue for us.
There is a restaurant and bar on site but we never went to it. It's walking distance to all sporting events and tons of bars, pubs and restaurants in the area.
CONS: wifi isn't free unless you are in the lobby, no complimentary breakfast, expensive room service charges
