There is nothing spectacular about this hotel except for the views and location.
On all other points this hotel is average to slightly above.
I recently stayed over the NYE holiday for two nights but have chosen this property three or four times prior.
Expect long lines at check-in/car pickup and for front desk staff to be friendly yet short (they are typically overwhemled even via the preferred line).
The room finishes are just ok but if you manage to wrangle a room with a view then the focal point shifts away from the slightly drab interior.
Alas, the hotel allows you a central location that can't be beat for the price point.
