I stayed last year and this year. There was a change in management in March and now it's no longer a Howard Johnson. While the rooms are the same, I feel the service as droped a notch, from outstanding to quite good.
The air con was really noisy and the view to the park was not so good as before (it seems it is no longer a park, they are cutting down many trees and building a sports arena nearby).
Dinner was very good at the chinese restaurant in the 3rd floor.More
