Great location and service at the onset was good but unfortunate that there was a fire at the premises which led to a 2 and a half hour evacuation -- and really no substantial offer of compensation for the very early wake up call apart from breakfast and a late check out and a brush off when this was questioned.
Rooms are great though, and location too -- but be warned the noise for some may be a problem but was ok for me.
