Was part of a conference and the hotel was booked for us.
Location: Very convenient for city centre...and its about a 20minute walk from NewStreet Train station (unless you get lost...which I managed to do). They have a car park for guests...they have a 24hour rate which I can't remember now but seemed quite reasonable.
Staff: Very friendly.
Rooms: Hallways are a bit dated (carpet in stairwell is faded and have holes). The rooms are a good size. The toilet and bathroom are separate. The bath is really narrow...they should just do away with it and leave the shower. But overall it was clean,bright and had good water pressure.
The mattress was hard and the 2 'pillows' were as flat as pancakes. Was unfortunately there on St Patrick's day and the noise from the street was quite loud...isn't double glazing meant to cut down sound? The next night was slightly better but street noise was still an issue.
Needless to say I didn't get much sleep.
Internet: You can pay to use it in your room (free in the upgrade package). They also have two iMACs in the lobby which are free to use.
In retrospect....I should have paid the additional cash to upgrade my room.....then again, the Hyatt Hotel was just a short walk down the street.
