Took an impromptu road trip tonight and wanted to share some impressions while they were still fresh. Never stayed here before and so far I'd have to give it a mediocre 5/10 rating. First off valet. It's $44. That's more than I've paid in some much nicer hotels in DC or even NY. They do offer a self parking option for $20 though so at least that's something. Another issue somewhat related though... they only seem to have limited staff on hand at night. I can partly understand that on some weekdays, but on a Friday night I only counted one valet, one bellhop and one guy behind the front desk. This was around 9:30pm too, so if you're checking in you end up with a rather lengthy wait since the staff is bound to be tired up with other guests. Not only that, but one valet means traffic at the door, so your taxi can't get to the door to pick you up if you're going out -- as plenty of people do on friday night -- or you have to wait a while for then to fetch your car. Overall the rooms are nicely appointed, with a work area even on the standard rooms. Unfortunately they feel noisy, with wind noise being clearly heard on the higher floors and even the climate control feeling a bit clunky when it starts/stops. Even worse, you'd figure street noise wouldn't be a big deal but with 676 bring just a block away you're bound to great the occasional biker or ambulance a bit clearer than you'd expect. Overall I can't honestly say it's a bad hotel, but it certainly doesn't feel like a great one either. I might take some pictures tomorrow and report back if the experience improves, but first impressions being what they are I'd have to recommend people stay away regardless. The location on 17th street is fairly convenient if you're here on business, but there are probably nicer places to stay downtown if you're here on your company's dime. For leisure travelers it's definitely not something I'd recommend considering what I've seen so far.
