We stayed the first weekend of September (2012) and it was a great stay overall. The front desk was friendly to answer our questions about parking, breakfast availability, wifi, and directions to places. The room itself (2-bedroom suite) was more than adequate, even though the TV in the living room is rather small. Our room came with a kitchen area, though we didn't fully use it, we saw the kitchen counter and fridge being very clean.
The beds were comfortable with plenty of pillows. The sofa bed was average, but that's expected any hotel you go. Parking garage isn't the most convenient (2 doors, separate entrance), but it's secure and underground with a daily fee of $17.
There is a little 'market' next to the front counter for snacks, drinks, aspirin and other misc things you might of forgot.
Breakfast was decent with several hot foods served. The bacon was a bit greasy/soft, and the eggs were a bit runny, but the staff kept them hot, and silverware refilled constantly.
Lastly, the location by the riverfront was fantastic. It was an easy walk to downtown and to the art museum. While there's not many people walking around at night, we didn't feel unsafe the entire time.
