We had a two-bedroom, two-bath suite with a full kitchen. It was like being in a good-sized apartment. Our balcony had a 180-degree view, taking in part of downtown and the mountains, as well as the river and the ocean in the distance. We also had our own washer and dryer.
The front-desk staff were very personable and helpful.
I will stay with the five-star review, although our stay wasn't without minor problems:
Housekeeping: This is typically the weak link in most hotels, owing to lack of attention to detail on the part of the housekeepers. One day we returned to find a bath towel on top of the rack, rather than neatly folded or replaced, and a sheet thrown onto one of the beds. I asked for the housekeeping supervisor to inspect the room. Supplies that were used were not always replaced.
Elevators: I don't know if there was another elevator in the building, but the one that we used to go to the second floor moved just slightly faster than the speed of evolution. This, with no one else using the elevator at the time, and with only three floors with guest rooms above the lobby level.
Noise: Our suite overlooked First Avenue, which is a busy street because of the convention center 1/2 block to the west. It is also a better route to the beach, as the streets in the old downtown are rather narrow. There was quite a bit of commercial traffic on this street at all hours, as well as idiots on skateboards.
All in all, we'd definitely stay here again. The proximity to the convention center and beach was excellent. We could leave our car at the hotel and walk almost everywhere.
