Some are true, small gym, pool, pretty cold breakfast room. I also had to recognize some defects (toilet, sink) in my room, which was in the new tower. Here and there some need for... More

This was out third stay at this hotel in the past 3 years and the service and staff have only gotten better. We recommend the new tower for a room location as these are modern with all the bells and whistles as well as a nice view of the city and historic areas.
