Stayed here in Feb. '02. I had read on the internet to try for a room with a river view so i asked but was told it was an extra $20, so i passed on their offer. I don't know if it was because i didn't have a Starwood Preferred Card or perhaps the check-in girl was new and doing everything by the rules (she seemed to be speaking to me according to the hotel's pre-fabricated script, rather than having a conversation with me). I don't think it had to do with occupancy, because the hotel seemed VERY empty. The bed was great, with a big feather bed under the sheets, and there were 2 shower heads in the bathtub (a plus in my book, my biggest complaint at most hotels is lack of water pressure). Unfortunatley, our room was located across from some employee closet, so everytime somebody went into that room our door rattled a bit (i'm sure i could've asked to be moved, but i didn't bother). Also, immediately after we arrived in our room, housekeeping came in (for what purpose i still can't figure out). Shortly thereafter, somebody else came in to replace an iron (i imagine the iron was supposed to be in the room but wasn't... we didn't call down for it). We were looking to relax for a bit and it felt like Grand Central Station. Overall the stay was nice, some rave about this hotel, and although i thought it was perfectly acceptable, i wouldn't describe it as one of the best hotels i've stayed in. It did have a decent fitness center for a hotel, and it's a good hotel to get thru Priceline at $61/nite (probably another hotel that if i was there at traditional rates i'd ask "why?", but on Priceline i left a happy customer). Overnight parking at the hotel and most of the immediate area is $32 per 24 hours.
