Was on a business trip that had me at one of the local medical campus buildings. The hotel was in a good location if you need to be local to medical campus. It is also on the light rail line so you can get downtown with relative ease. There are some fast food options right outside the hotel but not much int he way of "local fare" as it is very much a 9 - 5 part of town.
For those interested in concierge level access the evening lounge was up high with great views of the city. I was even offered a complimentary glass of wine the night I popped in. Breakfast is in a separate area on the second floor. A nice spread at breakfast including eggs and bacon/sausage daily in addition to the standard coffee and pastries. I felt like I had a full breakfast each day.
They also offer shuttle service to points within 2 miles of the hotel. They have two different cars running people around so I ended up waiting about 15 minutes for my departure and about 10 for my pick-up. I just had to call and let them know when I was ready for pick-up.
All in all a nice business trip hotel. My room was just ok but the service and amenities ont he property were very nice.
