Stayed here one night midweek for business. Got a king executive room (seemed to be about 350 ft2, huge room) for only slightly more than what I'd been paying at another mid-rate hotel in town (grantd I did have a corporate rate). Awesome room. Keurig coffee maker, flat-panel TV, big closet with a shoe compartment (of course), large shower but no tub in my room (but with plenty of room for two active adults :)).
The hotel has been redone in top-notch fashion. mixing contemporary living and urban manufacturing perfectly. The staff is terrific, the details surprising and refreshing. Loved the shoe box breakfast. And the robes - especially since I'd left mine thinking I'd make do without it for one night. Mini fridge with two bottles of water.
Yes, you do hear the trains, which rumble through briefly, about every 2-3 hours (the CSX switching yard is just up on Concord Turnpike). For the most part, my sleep was restful. My only "complaint" was super-hot water (which may have been a thermostat or wiring issue of some sort). and the shower head should've been a hand-held to reach everywhere.
The workout room is small (one each of treadmill, reclining cycle and elliptical) but cool looking. The first floor stairs has a cute reading nook if you're inclined (see pics).
A collegue of mine got a king corner room which was larger (had a tub) for the same price as my room (I didn't inquire about room differences, nor did he, we just asked for what had been available). I wish I could've stayed longer, and brought my boyfriend along! I didn't get to eat at their high-rated restaurant, Shoemaker's, but my coworkers recommended it. I have eaten at Waterstone, it's pretty good for lunch.
