We reserved the room through travelocity for two nights and were supposed to have a suite. We did get our suite when we checked in (and it was late, just after midnight). The suite would have been lovely, except someone had obviously snuck in to "use it" before we got in and thought they had done a decent of enough job cleaning up after themselves. Unfortunately they left the empty bottle of wine next to the bed and used the soap in the bathroom so that they were unwrapped on the trays....Plus the robes weren't folded right on the bed. We immediately called down and right away got another room but of course they didn't have another suite so we had a MUCH smaller room. Both rooms were very nice, sleek, modern. But the bathroom was tiny in the new room. And has this odd window into it. The hotel did feel bad and offered to send breakfast up the next morning but as there is breakfast included anyway, we didn't feel it was the greatest comp. The breakfast, however, is great, and includes a wonderful assortment of both cold and hot items. The location of the hotel is nice, it is a decent walk with luggage from the train station. Also, I had to print some documents out and the staff did that for me as their printer was broken, so I appreciated that. They also preordered a taxi for us. All in all, a fine hotel, not sure I would stay there again though, I'd probably try somewhere else for the money.
