I really liked this hotel. It was perfect for a business stay. Though I am not sure I would have felt quite the same if I had been on a pleasure trip, as this hotel is in the financial district and so at night and weekends the area is deserted with limited bars and restaurants.
In some ways, the relative blandness, predictability and efficiency of staying here makes it perfect for a business stay. For although it does not have a lot of soul and character, it does have friendly staff, good rooms laid out ideally to sleep and work, a 24 hour well equipped fitness centre and efficient but predictable bar and restaurant with good breakfasts and a limited choice on food otherwise.
I had a really great room. I think I was upgraded to a Junior Suite, as it was very large and split into 2 areas by a large divider. There was a massive flat screen TV, big comfortable bed, good sized desk and small seating area.
There is not much of a view, as you look into office though from one angle you could see water through sets of buildings.
It is not a long walk down to Market, the shops and Chinatown. But still not ideal if in town on a pleasure break as not in the heart of things.
