The hotel is on a busy street but is reasonably quiet through the night. If you are there with a car, everything is a convenient drive in any direction. Public transit is about three blocks away.
The front desk staff is cheerful and helpful. They gave me extra towels when I asked. They also provided an extra set of room keys on request. (There were two of us staying and we each had separate daytime appointments.)
Parking is an extra cost. I think it cheeky of any hotel, even a cheap one, to ask a parking fee.
The elevator often had the scent of cigarettes and alcohol.
The room is extremely small. I knocked my knees a few times getting in, out of, and around the bed even though I am quite small myself.
The room is tidy but apparently not dusted on a regular basis and I wondered if it had been vacumed recently.
Amenities are reasonable:
Anyone serious about their daily workout will laugh at the weight room, but it serves the purpose.
Two jacuzzis - one in the basement, one outside with the swimming pool. --- The change room in the basement is a nicer place to have your daily shower than the bathroom in your own room.
The grounds are impeccably groomed and enjoyable on a nice day.
The hotel restaurant is convenient but only open from 7:00 a.m. till 1:00 p.m. then open again later in the day for supper. I thought breakfast was greasier than it needed to be. My husband thought it was *okay*.
