The hotel is very nice. Beds are very comfortable, and the bedding is great. Nice views. Very nice work-out room facility (for a hotel) and a great indoor pool. The location is not really in the center of town, so getting around in the cold was a little bit inconvenient...unless you don't mind taking cabs everywhere. We actually walked quite a lot, and we did take the subway a couple of times (The Union Station is located few blocks from the hotel), so it was all right. For a conference, this hotel would be great because its big and has a business center.
