I stayed at the hotel for a few nights during the latest business trip. The hotel has been renovated very recently - and the place looks very chic and modern (exactly my slyle!) There is a very cozy bar in the lobby with a wonderful bar tender. Ask for a chocolate martini - that's her specialty.
The rooms themselves were perfect for a business traveler - had everything you'll need (complete with a big screen LCD/plasma TV and one of those cool massaging shower heads).
The only thing left to renovate were the elevators - so you felt like you stepped into a time capsule when the doors closed, but I think they were working on it back in January.
So - great hotel, great location!
