I got this room due to the proximity to downtown attractions. I was happy when we checked in to get 2 beds. Normally with priceline I am booked into a 1 queen bed. The rooms were clean but small. The furnishings are new and they have a flat panel screen tv with many channels which was nice. They are basically at the end of mag mile and I suspect if the weather were nicer it would be just fine but in the cold we had to deal with buses. They also have a shuttle which we used which is nice. Overall, my family enjoyed the pool and work out room. This is a nice feature especially downtown. Not many of the hotels have a pool. I am sure there are nicer hotels but when you have small children watching tv is just not enough. I enjoyed our stay here and would book again if I could get the $50 plus tax rate on priceline.
