Check in was fast. I got a room in the conference portion of the hotel. The hallways and room seemed a bit dated, and I was dismayed when I walked into the room to bathroom stench. It got better if I put a wet towel over the drain...but at times it was overwhelming.
The room was ok, the desk was kind of an after thought and not really comfortable. The bed was very comfortable and the room did cool down nicely for sleep. As mentioned, I struggled with the drain a bit. I found I could limit the stench, by closing the bathroom door...but them the morning shower was unbearable as the stink was confined and overpowering. My complaints to the front desk led to disinfectant sprayed throughout the room...but when that wore off, I was in the same situation.
Some more good stuff, the hotel is in a good location near the train station and seaport. A wonderful area to walk in. The hotel restaurant was tasty. I appreciate the breakfast and internet included.
