The lobby is roomy, the bar is... More

I stayed here recently for a conference for four nights. The hotel is clean and well kept. It's in a good location and close to shops and restaurants.

Everything was nice. The gym is just a little bit too basic. The Rooms are very big and the beds very comfortable. Service is excellent as well. I haven't been to the restaurant but breakfast is quite expensive. Wi-Fi is indeed costly but it was paid by the conference. At that time, there were btw many conferences going on, it... More

I last stayed here in 2010, and it's starting to show its age now. The decor is looking a bit tired and could do with a bit of a spruce up. The biggest problem for me was the doors. Why can hotels not work out how to close a door without it needing to slam shut? Whilst I was upgraded... More

Cannot say enough about the wonderful concierge---Bill and his colleagues.

I stayed here for business in March 2014. On arrival, the staff were cheerful and helped with the luggage, of which there wasn't much. The Reception Desk came up tops in my book, as they offered me a free frequent stay club membership, in exchange for getting free wifi for the stay. I am sure other hotels have the same... More
