After a long trip from Australia our room was ready early and on the conference level. Here is the problem noise from outside our room made it difficult to sleep early. This was exacerbated by the rain when it fell and hit the ledge that windows on the first floor have. If staying here make sure you stipulate not first floor.
The staff were friendly and efficient, particularly the restratrunt staff,the food was good and interesting.
The hotel is well situated and the room other than the noise very nice and very clean. We could walk every where we were keen to go or walk to a light rail or dart stop.
I doubt we would stay here again there are other choices in this price bracket where the noise from the rain and conference are would not be a problem
