About 30 minutes from the airport, the HIE Financial District is a good place for business travelers.
My stay was for 2 nights and I couldn't have picked better.
Room was a nice size. I particularly liked the "barn door" for the bathroom.
Outlets everywhere with a decent working desk.
Internet was adequate for emails and light browsing.

My one chance at breakfast was disappointing. I guess I missed the food rotation everyone raved about. BUT, there was plenty of fresh fruit if that's your cup of tea.

Lots of good food choices for dinner within walking distance (try La Vespa Ristorante & Cocktail Bar).
Balboa mall is a brisk 20 minute walk if that's your taste.

Overall a very good stay.

The hotel was clean, the room was spacious, enough electric outlets for all the usual devices.
There was no tourism desk so the front desk clerks had to answer all the questions related to the local attractions. Their knowledge was limited.
I found the breakfast selection scarce, mainly the fruit options (two the day I had breakfast in the hotel). Location is OK, not great, but OK.
Nice hotel, somehow a bit too basic for such an abundant city.

The good:

Nice, clean and comfortable. Breakfast is abundant and there are a lot of options which they change daily so you don't get bored that fast. Staff was kind and eager to help you. Beds so soft and comfy you found a hard time getting up. Room service was great and rooms smelled great everytime they came. Location is very convenient for downtown and major landmarks. Safe to walk in the neighborhood and close to many food options, even Starbucks.

For improvement:

Pool is smaller than it appears on the photos. Also water seemed a little murky, like it needed a deep clean. Honestly was grossed enough to not like getting in. No restaurant on the hotel.

Very kind front desk, quick check in. Room spacious and clean but with basic amenities only. Bed was excellent so sleep was deep and resting. Bathroom was modern. Breakfast was acceptable and every day different. Location was good and few of very good restaurants were on 5 minutes walk.

Room Tip: Very good for sleep and rest in back side rooms
