My wife and I are in the midst of our week-long stay. We are quite pleased with the hotel! We have one with a queen sized bed on the 12th floor. We are both very accustomed to small-space living (we live in a small apartment in downtown Seattle) so the relative small space is no issue. Sometimes when we travel our hotel rooms are ridiculously-large. But we are both cuddlers and prefer being next to each other as much as possible. (Awww, how cute! Shutup.)
The room is based around a queen-sized bed (it looks like a full-size though, little smaller than a queen.) The bed is very comfortable and the sheets are nice. The top cover, blanket, whatever it is called is a little heavy and rough. One side of the bed has a little shelf. Both sides have independent lights that do not dim. The overhead lights do dim, which is very nice. There are three windows in this corner unit that open (!) and are covered with heavy-duty black shutters that make the room as dark as a cave. The air conditioning works flawlessly and provides a great white noise for those who like that. There is a desk that has more electronic outlets than I have ever seen in a hotel room. I think the bulk of them are to connect devices to the medium sized flatscreen TV (which happily has lots of channels including HBO and Showtime). There is a small coat rack, safe and chair. And lots of storage slots under the bed for the luggage. There is enough room to walk around the bed. We especially liked the view we had of downtown and the Empire State Building. With the windows closed it was very quiet.
The bathroom. Well, it's interesting. The bathroom is based around a very large shower with a great rainfall shower head. The sink is tiny but great. The toilet is, ummm, good I guess (toilets are hard to rate). The glass door that separates the bathroom from the bedroom is less private than we are used to. I mean, it looks cool in pictures. I would have preferred a metal pocket door instead of a glass one. Travel diets and bodily functions being what they are, it's sometimes nice to have a personal buffer zone. But I won't subtract any stars for that - it's a design decision and I think it works fine. I'm willing to experiment with new closeness for the right price and this is definitely the right price.
We found the WiFi to be great, too. I am able to do my regular web stuff with no problem at all. We had a little snafu at check-in: we were assigned a room, went to it, and there was somebody in it already (that's not something I have every experienced!) The staff was quick to correct the mistake (I think it was a very temporary computer glitch). But it gave me some pause to consider room security.
In the morning, the hotel provides coffee and breakfast bars in the lobby. The lobby has some iPads on the wall for last-minute surfing and directional help. We will definitely stay here again.
Maybe ask for a higher corner room away from elevators?
