The location of the hotel is good close to business places (if you are on business) or shopping areas (if you are in town for shopping). The service is good and the food caters for all types of eaters.

I've been there with my wife for one week.It is a touristic hotel. I was surprised with the many different restaurants. We've visited different restaurants every day! Great breakfast within the major restaurant. The swimming pool is good and rather big. Sun beds and pool bar are available. They have free parking. City center is rather close.
