When I checked in, I was told I was put into a smoking room, since they were fully booked. I was then asked if this was Okay. For whatever reason, I said no, actually I would prefer non-smoking. The person at the front desk actually went the extra mile in my mind. She immediately got on the phone to talk to her manager. I could hear what he was saying, which essentially was "too bad, he booked with a third party, so he'll have to make do with the smoking room. Well the front desk person continued to push for something, and eventually I got my non-smoking room, with the explanation that someone else had actually requested a smoking room...and so it all worked out.
As a thank-you, I decided to have my dinner at the hotel, rather than spend my money elsewhere. Overall the food was good, the service in the restaurant was also good, and all was going well. The internet was free (WiFi) throughout the hotel, the bed was comfortable, linens were good quality, toiletries were good, and pillows were also good.
As stated elsewhere the hotel is a bit dated. The value and comfort for the money was pretty high, and I was left with a pretty positive experience.
