This hotel is by no means bad, however, it does not shine on any aspects either. The room is was OK, but the shower was broken at the beginning. Also, all of the power outlets are local, no adapter whatsoever. This is a business hotel so they should have installed different outlets as pretty much any other place does. Internet... More

The only reason why I am giving 1 star is that one day I came back from work and my luggage wasn't in my room. The hotel got into my room and took it without my permission. 5 minutes after I getting in, someone knocked on the door with my luggage! That's ridiculous!

Stayed there 2nights in Feb 2015. This is a oldish hotel, clean and all, but quite austere and far away from everything. Rooms are spacious but not welcoming, very "standard". Value for money is so-so. Breakfast buffet was ok. Tried the Verbena restaurant and could not finish my pasta that was bland and way overcooked. Did not try the pool... More

Apparently there are newer rooms on certain floors and older rooms on others. Clearly I got an older room. The carpet was grungy. The bathroom was nice, but the beds -- looked like a camping cot. Very basic for the price -- I was very disappointed. The location was okay for what we needed but this hotel is way overpriced... More

The staff at the hotel is very good. Very friendly and helpful. The hotel is very clean. The decor is a little drab. Not quite a 5 star. The on site restaurants were very good. Nice buffet and Italian restaurant. There are no restaurants or stores within walking distance so that is a downside.

Rooms and breakfast are very good. The fitness center is fairly well equipped. The food at the bar is okay at best but it's pretty much the only choice you have unless you take a cab. With the exception of the conference center, there is nothing noteworthy in that area. This is the second time I stayed in this hotel... More

The front desk staff were helpful and friendly. Not all restaurant staff spoke English, but those that did not went out of their way to find someone who did, so no issues there. We arrived early and early check-in for no extra charge would not be available until 10. No problem, as we just went to eat breakfast. The room... More
