I was not really impressed with this hotel. I stayed here with 2 other people for New Year's Eve, and since it was freezing we decided to use the hotel's valet service out of convenience ($34 bucks). Had it been warmer we definitely would have saved some cash and used a public parking garage.
Also, due to the weather we had dinner at the hotel's restaurant. It took over 30 minutes from the time we ordered to receive our food, so that was annoying.
The room itself was frigid cold when we arrived; we cranked the heat up to 80 but it never really felt warm enough, even the next morning. They also neglected to restock toilet paper in the bathroom, and the coffee maker was broken, much to the chagrin of two caffeine addicts who desperately needed their morning fix after a night out.
We also used the hotel's taxi service to get to our event, which was only a few blocks away, and were charged 10 bucks. I probably sound cheap, but for $137 a night, I've had much better service & amenities at hotels. I couldn't believe that it was $10.95 to use the Wi-Fi, I thought that was something all hotels provided free of charge these days.
Overall it wasn't terrible, I just think they could have done a better job of providing basic amenities. On the flip side, the beds were really comfortable
