We stayed for a couple of nights. The 'double room ' was easily the smallest room of our tour. The bed was a small double with room for only one bedside table. There was barely room to walk around the bed. There was a large freestanding air con unit in the room which sounded like having a small aircraft in... More

Thank you for taking the time to provide your feedback. I'm sorry that our Petite One Double Bed room category did not meet your expectations and that given the small space, the air conditioner was too noisey. We have been challenged to find a method of cooling this particular type of room quickly and efficiently while minimizing any noise and... More

My stay at the HoP was quite enjoyable. The room was clean and comfortable: well appointed, a/c in the room I could control, comfortable bed. The staff was super friendly: got a full hotel tour, even though I arrived at 1:30am. Breakfast, included with the room, was nice: a fresh continental breakfast. Not enough to last you the day if...

Nice rooms, pleasant staff, clean bathrooms, great in-town location. One negative: no elevator to access second floor rooms and no bellman. Decent complimentary breakfast and beer and wine at happy hour. No snacks or munchies, though.

I stayed here for a week on business. This is a small hotel which has been recently renovated. My room was quite small but for me, perfectly adequate. The room had an air conditioner. Cleanliness: perfect (and I'm picky). Every morning a full complimentary breakfast was served including: porridge, cereal, a hot dish (which was different daily), toast, bagels, yogurt,... More
