The bed was very comfortable and the water in the shower became hot in a reasonable time.

They are redoing the front so even though I had 3 really cool windows, they had plastic sheeting over them. We were notified of the renovation a day or two before booking, but it only talked about scoffolding and not windows being totally covered. I was only there for one night so it wasn't a big deal, but it could be frustrating for someone staying longer. I look forward to seeing the renovation when it is complete.

The toys were fun, and the decor in the lobby and in the room was nice...

We stepped out of the hotel a little after 10 in the morning, and when we returned around 4, the room had still not been serviced. I expected a little more from a room with a rack rate of $300+/night.
