Having stayed at enough business hotels in America, I would say that this ranks as a good business hotel. (Sorry Mr Percopo but TA goes from Average to Very Good; there is no Good rating. And in such a situation, it is better to be conservative and go with Average rather than Very Good.)
You have a good size room, with all the amenities for work, a coffee machine with Starbucks coffee packs, a bar fridge without the bar, an ice-bucket without the ice, and a complimentary bottle of water with compliments.
The bathroom amenities are standard in the USA--shampoo, conditioner, lotion; no comb, no toothbrush or toothpaste, no shower cap, and of course no bedroom slippers. My cupboard was small. I had to squeeze to get my few days of clothes, jacket, and pyjamas in.
For reasons I do not understand, I was given a room with a handicap toilet. You can see it in the floor plan--it's nearest the elevator and the toilet takes up some room space. The upside was that the various grab bars make convenient spots to hang laundry. The downsides were that you have to walk to your towel and your room is smaller than average.
The best part of the hotel must be the "everything under $9" lunch. The restaurant is pretty good and to have a good restaurant lunch for $9 in a hotel is a good deal It was so good I ate there most days.
Would I stay there again? From what I can gather, this is a newish (2010) hotel in the downtown area. If you teleport me from the room to another good business hotel in another city surreptitiously, I would not know. It's like any business hotel. The shower--only in America--where you cannot control the volume of the water, only the pressure, is so yesterday.
It comes down to the location and the reason you have to be there. I will likely try some place else next time.
