I attended a conference held in the convention center so the choice of accommodation was dictated by that, not connected to anything else. So my humble opinion of the room was that the bed was hard and uncomfortable for my taste and it took several tries to find the right combination of pillows to make it at least bearable to get some sleep. I did not have a fridge or microwave in room which is a convenience I've become accustomed to in my travels. You don't know how much you miss it until it's gone. The tiny in-room coffee maker did it's job, but don't expect to make 2 cups of coffee quickly. It apparently takes some time to cool off enough to allow itself to heat up another cup of water. Then there's the train....if you're a light sleeper, don't get a room on the north side of the building for sure. I had issues connecting to the wifi and whether it was my devices or not, I had to reconnect every morning and in every meeting room.
I did not use the onsite restaurants so no comments on those, but the food we were served as part of the conference was decent.
If you're there for a conference, dress for all kinds of temperatures. Depending on where I was in the main convention space, I was either cold or comfortable. In the smaller meeting rooms I was hot. In the amphitheater, I was wishing I had a winter coat and gloves to wear. I think that's typical of any meeting space I've been in though.
I did not get to use the other amenities like the pool or fitness center. FYI, the pool was dark at 9:30 pm on a Thursday night even though closing time is 10 according to the posted hours.
The one thing I wish I would have had time to do is take a walk along the edge of the river. There is a nice walking/bike path that is fairly easy to get to from the motel (across the parking lot and under the bridge). I'll have to save that for my next visit.
