Large, comfortable hotel with good gym and swimming pool, great sports bar, waterside bar, excellent breakfasts, and a reasonable restaurant. Outside bar area by the water / marina is a great place to relax.
Staff helpful and efficient without being too overbearing (even for a European!) Expensive WiFi but it is free in the lobby.
It is located about 200m from the convention centre. Otherwise pretty soulless part of town with nothing of great interest apart from the aquarium, which is mediocre, and a small local history museum. Quite a trek to anything else, but there is a tram system right outside.
The only drawback if you are on the north side of the hotel is the TERRIBLE wannabe bands playing outside the Times Forum (ice hockey stadium). Loud, and not so talented! And band practice at 0600 on a Saturday morning? Noooooooooo!!
