We were looking for a downtown hotel for our visit and this hotel fit the bill...on 6th Ave/Broadway and just on the edge of the Gas Lamp District and close to the waterfront. Good spot to walk to almost anything downtown. Hotel is in a beautiful renovated bank building and we found it comfortable. Some minor negatives; we were using Marriott points to stay for the weekend. Upon check in we were told we had been upgraded to a room which was described as having wonderful windows, architectural features etc....we get to the room and it is directly over the main entrance one level above the street. Was willing to give it a go re: noise, but we are in the room 5 minutes and a large fan of some type kicks in and is making considerable noise right behind the bed. I consider myself low maintenance but there was no way I could deal with that noise. The good news is that the hotel changed my room immediately and we ended up in an interior room of the same size and type and all ended well. I guess my point is I always wonder when staying on loyalty points at a hotel if one is given a "good" room or a "lesser" room given the lack of money changing hands. In this situation I feel like we were being given a lesser room hoping we would be OK with it. Again, the hotel accomodated our change request without any issues and I compliment them on that. I would recommend the hotel for someone looking to be downtown.
