I got the impression from the hotel Web site that this would be an upscale hotel, but while it was good, it wasn't fantastic. I got a room with two double beds, but the beds seemed a little smaller than double. Perks: very close to Chinatown, free Wi-Fi, lap desk for your laptop in the room, full-length mirror on the back of the closet door, hot breakfast included in the stay--although the choices weren't superb--just eggs, potatoes, cereal, fruit, bagels, coffee/tea, waffles you can make yourself.
Parking will cost you--$20 to self park and leave overnight in a lot operated by Patriot, a little bit down the street. The walk is not bad at all (less than 5 minutes), and I had suitcases. There is valet parking for more money.
The newspaper that was supposed to come with my stay wasn't left at my room door, even though I could see papers left for my neighbors. I got a paper in the breakfast area--there was a pile of them there.
I had two problems with the rate: when I called to make the reservation, the operator couldn't find the promo rate that was being offered as part of the conference I was attending. She made a note of it in my reservation. When I went to check in a few days later, the front desk guy had no idea what promo rate I was talking about or the woman who added the note to my reservation. Then he acted like he was doing me a favor by giving me the rate I was quoted even though I had paperwork from the hotel saying that was the rate I was supposed to receive.
