On one hand the hotel is nicely refurbished, modern and clean. The location is superb, very close to the Central Line and many conveniences. On the other hand, the staff is only okay and create a sterile environment. They were adequate. The rooms are quite small, the bathroom is tiny, barely large enough for one person. The wifi is horrific such that if I had to be there on business I would have been highly annoyed. It's the 21st century folks, can you please have quick and efficient wifi service! The breakfast was fine, nothing incredible. We had a decent stay and the hotel is fine and looks good, just don't expect anything in the wow category.
