I chose this hotel because it was close to where friends were staying. It wasn't the cheapest option, but I thought it was great value for location. My room was generously sized and the bed was comfortable. The room was dark and had no view to speak of, which was fine for me because it allowed me to get my beauty rest and it was very quiet. As others have noticed, the decor is a little dated but for me this added to the charm as it didn't have the "cookie cutter" blandness of many chain hotels. I didn't take advantage of the breakfast (it seemed a little expensive given that there are so many options available elsewhere) but the lounge area was quite lovely.
