I stayed in a Club Queen room which was one of the basement club rooms. The bed was huge, but was actually two singles pushed together, which meant ending up sleeping on just one side anyway, but it was comfy enough.

Overall, a decent little hotel with friendly staff, and I'll certainly consider this hotel again for my next visit to the office.
