THE ROOM -The king bed room we had on the 10th floor was amazing. Ample space, pristinely clean, beautiful lighting, and perfect view of the water. Good air quality, nice linens, comfortable mattress. The travertine-tiled bathroom was huge, and right above the bathtub there is a sliding partition that opens onto the head of the bed -design is difficult to explain but I've uploaded photos of room 1043. Pay wifi though, so beware and prepared. I had Verizon LTE and reception was decent but occasionally spotty.
NEARBY -Check out Flour bakery + cafe at 12 Farnsworth St, it's right across the Congress St. bridge. This is a perfect breakfast or lunch stop! It's great if you are heading to the convention center, or even before heading out to sightseeing. For serious coffee enthusiasts, try Barrington Coffee Roasting company. Siam Thai across the street from the main entrance great for a quick cheap meal.
THE SERVICE -The only drawback was that the staff was not especially friendly, only cordial, perhaps because we were not dressed up, which is a shame. We arrived on the evening of a huge event starting in the morning at the very near-by Convention Center. I was surprised that there was only 1 person at the check-in desk, so there was a wait. Check-out on the last day of the convention had an even longer line. Luggage check service was very curt.
