Rooms were clean, but the heat system was making very much noise when it started. The shower was mall and there was many variation in the water's temperature. The beds and their mattress were very comfortable!!! I would maybe return, but I don't think it's really a four-stars.

This hotel was ok. Stayed because it was near our conference location. However, it's not near any amenities like a Starbucks and it had very little amenities. You definitely needed a car to stay here. As noted in other reviews, elevator was extremely slow (this is an old hotel and it shows). When you stepped out of the elevator there... More

The room was very clean and open. I really liked the open concept even if you don't have a lot of intimacy (the open shower separate bed from toilet) elevators are really slow and it was a little bit noisy at night but not much as anywhere else. The breakfast is included and it was ok if you like eggs... More

I stayed here for a week. It's a solid average hotel, that showed it's age. The lobby is nice and check was was good, however they only have 1 elevator and it's not a fast one. This resulted in in bit of waiting time during the week. Housekeeping could do a little better. My room has a layer of dust... More

This was our fourth place of stay on our tour and slowly the jet lag is diminishing that we where suffering. The lift is a bit rickety but everything was ok. Some friends told us about various restaurants just along the road turn right as you come out of the main door. We just took the take away and had... More

The hotel doesn't look like much from the outside, and the inside isn't much better. The single rickety elevator takes you up to the highest, seventh floor from the lobby. The rooms are okay. The bathroom is where the problem is. It clearly was an upgrade in the past few years to some kind of a Japanese/Asian theme. However it... More

Although it had not been renovated, it was very clean and peaceful The price was right, and the location was great . There was a beautiful park for my morning run across the street, just gorgeous! We took advantage of their shuttle to... More

Stayed here 1 night on our Coach Tour. Our room was very comfortable and clean and spacious. Service good. We had dinner downstairs which was very good. We sat outside in the cool evening and enjoyed ourselves very much. The bar staff were particularly helpful. The breakfast was really good here. Would stay here again.

Bought a $10 all day ticket and hopped on and off the train several times in city. Hotel offered special set menu for breakfast $7.50 for 2... More
