There was a bit of confusion when I checked in. As a business traveler I always request a king size bed. However, somehow here the word request and confirmed have two different meanings. While they confirmed my reservation they said that it had been put through as a standard size bed but the king room would be $20 more. Ok, I'd rather spend more to be comfortable so I went for it. However, this really shouldn't have happened. To their credit they did throw in free internet in the upgrade so it was a wash.
The location is excellent as there are many restaurants within walking distance. The rooms are comfortable and certainly my King bed turned out to be the right choice.
My main complaint is their parking situation. They offer valet parking only for $20 per night. So that means if you need your car a couple of times then you wind up tipping the valet each time. I'm not a cheap person but I am very capable of parking my car myself and like the freedom of getting it whenever I like instead of calling down for it or standing and waiting while the valet fetches my car. I also have a personal pet peeve of hotels that charge travelers more than a nominal fee for parking or internet service. These items should be included in the room charge instead of tack-ons at check in time.
Still, the quality and comfort of this hotel is good and if you are on business travel you will have a comfortable stay.
