I stayed here instead of the convention hdqtrs hotel. What a good decision. The staff of this hotel is fantastically nice: courteous, helpful, patient with the three changes of cab pick-up times we needed due to airport delays that were being texted to us. We ended up hanging out in the lobby for several hours which was a lot better than sitting at the airport. This hotel has 24 hour coffee, tea, hot chocolate that is a great convenience. The fitness center is 24 hour. I didn't use the pool but it looked well-maintained. The complimentary breakfast is very good with choices beyond the usual stale carb loaded junk. Hot oatmeal with nuts and dried fruit was a daily staple, as were whole wheat bagels (fat-free cream cheese available), and a choice of four hot items including one breakfast meet. The eggs were dehydrated and unappetizing to me, but lots of people seemed to like them. There were four of the commercial-type waffle makers and sugar-free syrup and margarine as well as regular syrup and butter were available. The juice was not watery and there were pastries and bread for the less health conscious. Skim milk and whole fresh fruit were also available. The atmosphere was incredible for a big city center hotel: guests actually made eye contact and were nice to one another. There is a lobby bar that is open supposedly to 11:00 but it appeared to be open as long as there were customers. Reasonably priced bar food including a sandwich and salad were available as well as chips, pita and hummus, etc. The is a small grocery section with snacks, soda, ice cream (in cartons) and microwavable food. The house cola is Pepsi but no one complained about guests walking around with Coke cans purchased outside, which may seem very trivial but not to those who dislike the "P" product. There is free wi-fi everywhere and open access computers in both a partitioned section of the very nice lobby and on the lower level. Printing is available and complimentary. The room was nice, beds comfortable, linens changed according to guest preference and the flat screen TV channels plentiful. I stayed for a week and couldn't have been happier.
