My wife and I stayed in a Junior Suite for a night during the 4th of July week.
Check-in was smooth. We got there quite early and they were happy to hold our luggage until our room was ready while we went out and explored the city. A bellhop (wish I could tell you his name) gave us some great suggestions on what to do on a short stay, and we were off!
When we returned to check in to our room, we got cookies (warm!) and our luggage was delivered to the room within minutes. The room itself is beautiful, clean, and the floor-to-ceiling windows give you an absolutely stunning view of the city.
We were on the 25th floor and there was a little noise from the rooftop bar later at night, but it was minimal and we had been notified about the possibility and told that if there were any problems with it that they would be happy to accommodate a switch. Wasn't enough of a problem to take them up on the offer.
On the down side... for the price of a fairly high-end hotel, I do resent paying $12 for basic internet access. Maybe a picky point, but in the neighborhood of $300/night should be enough to cover wireless access.
Otherwise... great place, great location, great service,
