The setting is spectacular. Its a good, quiet hotel if you are attending a convention next door. However, this should be a much better hotel. I had to fix my shower curtain. The bathrobe they provided was clean, and came quickly, but was torn and stained. In a nearly empty restaurant, while I was dining alone and reading, they seated a family with a baby right next to me. The elevators in the main lobby are only accessible from one side, instead of both sides of the lobby, forcing people to run in circles. To exit the hotel on foot, you have to descend to the lower level, which is in two parts, so to get from the hotel restaurant to the pedestrian exit to the convention center you have to go up to the lobby on one escalator and descend in another escalator a few feet away. This is all just weird engineering.
However, the unforgiveable is that the food is not good aside from the breakfast. Heavy on the salt, and needs more imaginative salad options and fresh vegetables... The small plates at the bar are particularly salty and ... oh never mind. Just underwhelming. There is a Starbucks, but what is with the cheesy fro-yo place with the artificial fro yo?
The staff are great. There are better dining options nearby.
