Stayed at this hotel during the Davis Cup finals and have mixed feelings about it. As someone who stays at Westins for business 20 times a year and Four Seasons and Mandrian's on vacations I can say that the staff at this Klimpton property goes out of their way whenever possible but the property is limited.
The front desk/ bell staff will try to help you everway possible, from printing your boarding passes, to calling 10 places to get you a reservation on a last minute request. They never blinked an eye. The rooms were alright, the linens were nice, but the desk, couch were not comfortable or practical. The windows are drafty as it is an old building so if it is cold be prepared to keep drapes closed to stay warm.
Lastly in regards to the room, the bathrooms might have aveda products but that does not take away from bathrooms that look and feel like they should be in a Holiday Inn Express not a Klimpton property.
Regarding dinning, The Red Eye Tavern is a great place but it is New American so might not be for everyone. If boar and venison is not your type of dining then your in room and on property dinning selection is limted.
The location is limited as it is downtown and the streets are very deserted at night and on the weekends, Even wih the Holiday season and Macys and Saks near by nobody on sidewalks at 5:00pm on a Sunday.
Overall this hotel is nice but be prepared that it is not over the top in anyway.
