Stayed here on business for a total of 5 nights over two separate periods. The hotel which used to be owned by the Intercontinental appears to have under gone a internal facelift. Check in was very efficient and the staff very helpful and pleasant. Rooms are large enough by US standards although the bathroom is relatively small as is the wardrobe. The Double/King size bed is comfortable and clean with the WiFi being very reliable. TV channels are wide selection but no on demand services. I would recommend that the Hotel consider updating TV hardware to the larger LCD type from the existing CRT type, also they should consider replacing basic alarm clocks with more iPod/iPad docking charging stations. Breakfast was a good experience the staff are attentive and very courteous, food is well prepared with Buffet style and menu options available. Parking at the hotel can be a problem if the hotel is being used to host for a big function. Check out was quick and efficient.
