My partner and I stayed in this hotel recently and were pleasantly surprised. We expected very little as we stood in the shadow of this enormous concrete phallus but if you can get past the grey postmodernist facade it contains much beauty and modern trimmings. The staff welcomed us with smiles and all were attentive and smart. The reception area is a little intimidating as it is the size of an aircraft carrier (without any aircrafts). Thankfully there is a bar serving a variety of strong beverages designed to address any insecurities and inhibitions. The Jury’s Inn sits in the centre of noisy Broad Street. With noise pollution in mind we requested a room on the 2781’st floor. Although staff assured us the building was sound proof they were happy to oblige when I told them I needed to feel closer to god. The modern boutique style room was spacious and clean. Although the west facing windows did not open the views are spectacular. If you dare to peek into adjacent buildings and hotels some of the sights are. . . ‘educational’.
In short, this is a lovely reasonably priced hotel in the centre of our greatest city. This building may look grey and ugly and by night Broad Street may be known for it’s noise and vomitous, BUT once inside this hotels inner sanctum I doubt you will be disappointed.More
