The hotel itself is fine, clean and comfortable and a decent breakfast was included. We had no problem finding a space in the underground garage ($10 a night extra). However the location was very much a mixed blessing. We arrived on a Sunday afternoon and found the streets absolutely deserted. Next day wasn't much better and although the museums etc were within walking distance, we didn't feel comfortable walking in this area at all. Fortunately there was a restaurant on the corner of the block so no need to venture far at night. One niggle I have with HIE is they won't give you Priority Club points if you have pre-booked through an agent. I mentioned this to the receptionist and she gave me a small bottle of water to compensate!!
