This is a nice hotel, but had some oddities. The rooms were standard rooms - nothing special. No fridge, which was disappointing. And, I had a nice view of a roof with a bunch of air conditioning units. A river view would have been nicer - they have those too.
My tub also had a very slow drain issue. I called down to the front desk and they offered to do it while I was out to dinner so that I wouldn't be disturbed or send someone right up (up to me). I chose the "while I'm out" option. No sign that this task was accomplished when I got back. However, during my shower the following morning, I had no problems.
The lobby layout was odd - when I got dropped off by the taxi at an entrance that did not lead to the check-in desk. Instead, that was up a flight of stairs. Having my luggage with me, I decided to leave it at the bottom (I had already turned down the bellman - not realizing this). There was an elevator I could have used, but that was a longer walk. Check-in was quick and efficient.
Lobby was large and awkward. Nothing in a large open area the first night. It was used for a wedding the second night and for a trade show after that. The pool is also situated in the lobby. The atrium looks up to the top of the hotel.
There's a spa - quite small, but the service I had (Swedish massage) was nice. I think I was the only one using the spa at the time, so it felt very private. The spa includes a sauna and steam room, robes, towels, bottled water and other sundries. It's off the lobby.
The bar was nice. Since I was there for a conference, it was a nice meeting area. It was all part of the open floor-plan lobby. It closed early, though - 10 p.m.
It's not a far walk to get to the restaurants and shops. But, if you wear heels, it can seem that way. Good shoes are a must.
