My boyfriend and I stayed here on a Friday night. We requested an upper level room and were promptly placed in a corner room on the 20th floor. Our room had two walls of windows and a spectacular view. The view alone justifies the price. In addition to the view, however, the Dana room contained the single most comfortable hotel bed I have ever slept in--imported linens, king-sized bed, fluffy down comforter, a mountain of pillows.
It is strange entering the hotel through the bottom floor restaurant, but a friendly host quickly directed us upstairs to the lobby. We also checked out Vertigo, the lounge on the top floor, but it was packed at 11:30 on a Friday night, so we opted for the quiet of our room instead.
The shower is big enough for several adults and the water pressure is great. The set-up is a little strange--with just one night there, we weren't able to master showering without soaking the rest of the bathroom, as the shower does not have a door that closes, but it's still quite nice. There is only a curtain over a glass wall blocking the view of the shower/bathroom from the rest of the room, but it wasn't an issue for us.
The continental breakfast Saturday morning was impressive, as far as continental breakfasts go. There was a large room service menu available at all times of day, but we did not try it. We took breakfast back to our room and made mimosas.
Overall, the staff was friendly and competent, the ambiance was great, the furnishings were modern but comfortable, and all of that, in such a prime location, close to so much activity downtown, simply can't be beat.
