I quite liked this hotel which is apparently new (about 4 weeks I was informed), very handy for the Pearl District and still clean and tidy, however I have a few observations.
Firstly, the "complimentary" breakfast ( it always annoys me when they say complimentary as we all know we pay for it anyway) was a little basic and the facilities and set-up would be familiar to anyone that's undergone basic army training. It also closes at 9:30 which nearly caught us out as just about everywhere else I've stayed goes on until 10.
Secondly, don't use the valet parking service as all they do is put it in the multi story car park next door and charge you way above the car park rate.
We also had a visit from a room service attendant who didn't knock and just walked straight into the room, much to the surprise of my wife. Luckily we were dressed and in a state of relaxation at the time otherwise it could have been red faces all round.
It would also seem that the lift capacity is less than would be ideal as we seemed to have to wait for a lift every time. It's not helped by the fact that one of the three lifts is commandeered by house-keeping thereby reducing the available capacity by one-third at a stroke.
Oh, and the swimming pool is little more than a long bath.
Other than that I thought the rooms were well equiped and the hotel served our purpose well.
