7 months since last stay here back in March and now that Doubletree have confirmed their position as hotel owner there has been some changes both good & bad. Lobby & checkin still as efficient as ever, allocated room 1124 overlooking the station but thankfully the double glazing is so good you hear nothing. Room is perfect, clean, tidy & everything you could want in a city center hotel.
All the signage now has the Doubletree brand which is good. One small change which is not so good is that breakfast is no longer cooked to order and is served buffet style so the cooked items are not as piping hot as you would want unless you wait for them to be changed when they come from the kitchen with new hot ones. Fried eggs and poached eggs are however still cooked to order ( mind the shells) upon request to your server & were better than the scrambled egg at the buffet. The plates are no longer dinner plate size and seem to be more salad plate size so it is hard to organise your cooked breakfast on the smaller plate.(a ploy to get you to eat less & save the hotel money?) Also the orange juice tastes lower quality as it has that distinctive after taste which you do not get with Tropicana etc. Breakfast service was good otherwise. The sky bar on 13th was busy on both nights but worth a visit for the views & excellent cocktails. The hotel still looks good and seems to be well maintained so I hope they continue the otherwise good work.
