I had a nonsmoking room and didn't notice any smell that other reviewers have commeted on. The lobby is nice looking with tea and coffee set up all day. My room was good size and it was clean.
What needs work is the breakfast. They took two hotel rooms and made them into the "hospitality suite." The free breakfast was well stocked, but disappointing. They only had bagels, boxed cereal, make-your-own waffles and bagged danishes in a very small and cramped room. I would've like to have seen something with protein, but I guess they did the best with what space they had. Also the seating area was very tight as well. It felt like you were on top of the other guests and if they had a good size family, well good luck with having a quiet breakfast. My second complaint is while the staff was friendly, they were all dressed very casual, as if they were wearing their street clothes. They didn't look like hotel employees.
