I have stayed here before (October 2011 for 4 nights ) and enjoyed the hotel, the area outside is a bit run down with little to do in the immediate vicinity. However, I returned here for 1 night and requested/paid for an early check in as I had arrived from a nighttime flight. I was left to wait for my room in the lobby for close to 2 hours, the receptionist was polite and apologetic. As a non smoker, I obviously requested a non smoking room. When I finally got my room, it stank of stale smoke and I mentioned it to the bell boy who assured me he would let reception know and would send someone up to spray the room. Never happened. The rooms are fine, dark furnishings and bathroom meets expectations. Reception staff are very polite and friendly though and concierce staff very attentive.
