This hotel is very nice and clean, but for me not a top-notch property. It's like staying at a Wyndham or similar hotel. It would be nice to have a coffeemaker in the room and a fridge would be nice. There is a mini-bar, but you have to call room-service to unlock it. I would like to have a place to keep a chilled bottle of wine or soda. My other beef is with the valet. The hotel's lot fills up and can't accommodate all the guests' vehicles. I took my car out in the evening and asked the valet if I would have any problem when I came back later in the evening and he said "you shouldn't." Well I know I shouldn't, but when I returned at midnight the valets were gone and the lot was full. I found an employee to take my car, but he was looking around like he was looking for a place to park it on the street. Not acceptable when you're paying $28 per day just to park your car.
The hotel is right across from Horton Plaza, so shopping and restaurants are nearby. (Don't miss the St. Tropez bakery/cafe across the street for breakfast). Unlike most hotels whose windows only open a crack, all the rooms have sliding glass doors that open, which is great to get the fresh air. But overall its published rates are outrageously high for what you get.
