The 17-story hotel, very close to the city's convention center, is right in the heart of things and has rooms with lots of amenities. Rooms are decorated in earth tones and feature halogen lights and prints of local architecture. In-room desks swivel away from the wall, allowing guests to work and watch the plasma TV at the same time. Views are good from every side, showing off either expanses of urban greenery or the city's skyline and convention center. The lobby is a wide, welcoming space that flows into the large bar, done in polished hardwood and marble.
