Almost a year ago I wrote that the 'Spires was akin to an Extinct Volcano... well, it seems things are afoot to improve, judged from my recent stay ...the Volcano is awakening perhaps.
Noticeable improvements (that I bemoaned the lack of, last time) include free internet and common areas beginning to be updated and refreshed. The builders were in during my stay (mid-November 2010) - but importantly didn't disrupt my stay.
From my experience, this is a hotel that offers easy access, free parking, some very spacious rooms, with decent bathrooms, an indoor pool and basic small gym, reasonable bar, and agreeable breakfast service all for reasonable room rates. And free internet of course.
They still have a few bizarre detail things to sort such as an exec room with a king size bed but which is two single beds pushed together yet with two single duvets(!) atop, or the huge bathroom that has no lighting in the shower-over-bath area(!) or the shower curtain that is only 750mm wide(!) and still the proverbial mould around the bath. Nearly there...
