This hotel, with its four circular towers connected to a fifth central tower, has been featured in many TV shows (see its Wikipedia article). The interior continues the circular theme, with oval fountains (drained and turned off during my visit), rounded seating areas (the central fifth floor is a good place to be alone in the crowd), and elongated glass elevators. The front desk told me that I'd been placed in a recently renovated room; I was pleased by its clean and modern feel.
Although the room's wedge shape is unusual, it's necessary when you have circular towers. The room's big enough. The internet ($12.95/24 hours, wired and wireless) is too slow to watch video, but is OK for checking e-mail and basic web surfing. A few unnecessary amenities were missing (i.e., the robe hanger had no robe and the minibar was empty), but that didn't affect my stay at all.
The hotel restaurant serves a pricy breakfast buffet, but I also had a delicious and reasonably priced dinner at the Bonaventure Brewing Company restaurant.
If I'd gotten the low rates some others have posted, I'd highly recommend it. As it is, there are a few other hotels in the neighborhood equally as nice at lower price points.
