Stayed here for 5 nights attending a conference, As others have said, the free wifi is great...good signal, never dropped. All hotels should offer for free. Room was well-furnished and well-maintained. Not exactly set up for business traveler (outlets were not close to table) but that's the only minor complaint about the room. Arrived in the morning and luckily they had a room ready. My big concern getting off the elevator was that I appeared to be on a smoking floor, but no trace of cigarette smell in my room.
There are several floor of hotel parking between the ground floor lobby and hotel rooms (which means the hotel rooms sit up higher and have more opportunity to offer views). Didn't use the pool.
Neighborhood is not great...many vacant/abandoned buildings within a couple blocks and not a central location but OK. As someone else pointed out, going in/out through the back door saves a few steps in walking to DT/FQ. Didn't take the hotel shuttle (as I was on conference schedule) but just two blocks to Canal Streetcar (which runs very frequently). Ate one meal at the hotel...good service, passable food. Front desk staff were pleasant and efficient.
I would not be disappointed if I ended up at this hotel again from a priceline bid, but because of the location, would probably not pay rack rate.
