I recently stayed here for 3 nights on a business trip. The hotel is very new and the condition shows it. I had a room on the top floor and I experienced a very quiet stay. The air conditioning unit in the guest room was very good. The bed was comfortable, pillows and towels were fluffy. The amenities in the bathroom were very good.
The breakfast service was slow. It is obvious that the place is new, and I believe the staff is still learning. The continental breakfast was slim, however there is free Starbucks coffee on the breakfast buffet. When ordering from the menu it took over 20 min to get some scrambled eggs and bacon. It was good when it finally arrived though.
The area around the hotel has restaurants, shops and bars within walking distance. There is also a parking garage next to the hotel which is good to use for hotel guests.
Our group used one of the small meeting rooms, the air conditioning in this room did not work properly. In the afternoon it was very warm in the meeting room and we had to keep the door open for some air from the hallway. So beware of this situation if using the boardroom on the 2nd floor until they are able to get it fixed. The staff was very apologetic and did provide some fans to use - but it still needs to be fixed.
Overall I liked the place, they are still working thru the new facility issues and I know they will get them corrected. I look forward to coming back next year.
