The room and service is what you would expect from a 4-star hotel. Perfect location for the Old Town experience and easy freeway access or Mass Transit. The room was spacious, great city views and loved the gesture of providing free water and coffee delivery service. The concierge staff was always full of great tips and advise. My only complaint as a business traveler was the slow internet speed and cost of valet parking. At times it was no better than dial up service and had to use my cell service wi-fi when I needed to get quick response. I am sure the wireless internet access is highly dependent on location in the hotel from the access point and traffic bandwidth at the time of use. All the good points including a great rate helped overcome these negatives and would definitely consider coming back.
