I have stayed at this hotel several times, and will always stay here in the future. The value for the free parking and the room rates is a huge bonus. I know that the BW has been undergoing renovations (slowly, but surely), so anyone who has written a not-so-favorable review who had an older room would probably be satisfied with the newer rooms. We stayed in a newer room in April (and I believe also in August of 2010). There have been times that I've stayed in an area that was noisier than others, so I always request to be in a "not so noisy area" and have never been rejected. The parking staff is wonderful, and I have never had an issue with front desk staff. They have always been helpful, too (even when they're busy...which seems like they always are because the hotel is so popular). The star of the place is Wallace the concierge. Anything you have questions on (where to go, how to get there, etc.), Wallace is your man. We always enjoy chatting with him when we visit. We didn't get to use the pool that last time we stayed, but have always enjoyed swimming in the past. The fact that it's an indoor pool is a bonus. The area is quite large and the deck is great.
I have checked out other hotels online, but the room rates (and especially the $25+ per day parking rates) make them undesirable. If you're looking for a safe, clean, great location, this BW is the place for you.
