The hotel is located a close 4 blocks from the Convention Center, and the walk to there is great. The bellhops are quite friendly and offer to help with luggage if you'd like. The doors were always opened for me when entering or leaving the Hotel. The staff at the reception counter were quite friendly and fast. The Hotel is also clean. But this is where the compliments stop.
The non-smoking room, and the hallway leading to the room smelled like smoke, numerous room furniture items were in need of repair or they were extremely worn, the bathroom sink dripped, the carpet was stained in places as was the couch and desk chair, and the TVs were probably 10 years old with remote batteries needing replacement. There was a single instance of a repairman entering the room without knocking.
The hotel was nice enough, but definitely not 5-star quality. Perhaps "3 stars" out of 5 is more appropriate.
