Just spent one night here but found it a good place to stay. We had a good sized room which was decorated in the fairly typical corporate style but was comfortable. The bathroom was nice but the decor was a bit dark - the shower curtain was very dark so when in the shower it was an odd experience. We did not have breakfast there as did not fancy having a large meal. It mentioned in the guide to the hotel that there was a place serving coffee and pastries in the lobby but apparently that was not available. Luckily there are some coffee shops nearby (Au Bon Pain & Starbucks are about a 2 minute walk).
We ate in the bar and the food was nice but the room suffered from over air conditioning which is a not uncommon problem with many large hotels. Service was friendly and helpful. My husband was preparing for a conference and wanted a bit of extra time in the room so they gave us a late checkout at 2pm (instead of the normal 12pm) at no extra charge. There is a bit of traffic noise in the rooms (we were on the seventh floor) but nothing too bad.The history of the building was interesting and the location was good so I would recommend it.
