Firstly I'm confused is the hotel a Marriot or not? The answer I got was it is not and has not been for the past 4 1/2 years. Well in that case why does the hotel still look exactly like a Marriot!!! The only difference I could see was the curtains in the bedroom. The wifi network is Marriot the branding on the telephone is Marriot the carpets bear the same pattern as a Marriot hotel.
That aside the parking situation is horrendous if you arrive at rush hour as the parking is in a multi-level car park opposite the hotel.
I know what your thinking whilst reading this you are thinking-god this bloke is moaning on and on but there are good points which I will address later.
The toilet flush was broken (reported) and glued back together again vey badly.
The water pressure in the sink is really extreme- it's akin to putting your toothbrush under a shower head.
The hotel restaurant is described as a New York style steak house, again being totally honest the food is fairly good but Chinese style would be a better description.
The view from my room was drab to say the least looking at a back ally and a huge zinc coated roof through the dirty window ( see my photos )
All that said the best feature of the hotel is the bed by far one of the most comfortable I have ever slept in.
