Stayed here with my wife, 9yr old and 8 mo old for 3 nights after Christmas 2009. The room wasn't huge but it felt new and updated. Felt like I was in an Ikea display at first with the modern and super practical furniture but the layout and space grew on me. I thought it would feel small at first glance but it never did. Bathroom layout (w 2 sinks) was great to have as well as seperate bath from toilet space. Beds were a bit on the soft side (admittedly I am a 80something sleep number though) so others may find them perfect.
If you don't like crowds and like the free breakfast get there early as the breakfsat space fills up quickly and the noise-congestion is a little much to start a day out with. Free breakfast wasn't spectacular but they had the basics (cereal, bagels etc) with the token 2 hot items. Only complaint with the bar is the coffee. We ended up pining for a nearby starbucks :)
Only major complaint I have is that the hotel is 100% valet and they are not the best to put it mildly at dealing with people or managing keys. One of them was a bit rude to my wife and I one day as we were leaving for a drive out to Tybee Island after he got frustrated with our having no ticket or "number." He made it seem like we had forgotten it but we found out almost immediatley later the person parking our car never gave us one to begin with when my wife pointed at her keychain. A simple "I'm sorry" or acknowledgement that he was a little gruff with us for no reason would have been good. Also as we were leaving they couldn't find our keys so my wife ended up looking in this cabinet (2nd time) of dozens eyeballing each one until she found the correct key so the management and organization of the parking could be a lot better overall. Once inside the staff was great. Concierge was helpful and the desk staff were very nice.
The location is great so once you park your car you could go days without needing it which was our case. Overall the hotel was a great base camp for our 3 day stay in town. If you are going to be driving in/out a lot and you are not very tolerant of uneven valet service you may want to pass but otherwise its a thumbs up.
