To put this in context, this was a business trip.
It didn't start too well - relatvely long wait for check in wityh one person doing the checking-in being constantly interrupted by other members of staff for apparently trivial matters. Not a big deal though.
The rooms don't look much like the photographs on display on their website. The rooms are older - not necessarily worse but the photos do not convey the room decor or presentation very well.
And now something that bugs me for business hotels. They do not have an iron or ironing board in teh room (for security reasons). So you arrive to the airport late in the evening ready for business meetings early next morning. You unpack your bags and find that your shirt needs a quick iron! You look for and don't find what you need; you phone reception anticipating that they'll respond by saying that the iron and board will be delivered to your room! No! You can leave your garments with the laundery service and they'll have them back to you at some stage tomorrow - or pay more for a premium ironing service. Alternatively there's a ironing board on the sixth floor that's available for use. Next time I'll be staying at a hotel that less concerned about security and provides the in-room service that's provided at good hotels.
Food was good; sleep was good, bed and furnishings were comfortable and WIFI was provided free. Excellent!
Great location - just 7 minutes from the lake-front and plenty of restaurants close-bu.
