I should start by noting that this was a business trip, so my lodgings didn't cost me anything. But I would never have chosen this place because they charge for Internet access: $14 or $24 per 24 hours for slow/fast connections. I figure that a place that doesn't offer free wifi isn't much of a host. Similarly, there is no coffee-maker in the room--they want you to come downstairs and buy from their lobby Starbucks. I don't remember what the room service coffee charge was; it's the $7 bagel that lingers in my mind.
That said, the clean and quiet room was spacious and well appointed, with a comfortable bed, nice bathroom, and lovely view. The location is terrific and the staffers are very friendly. I'd be happy to stay here again, especially if someone else were picking up the check.
