Stayed here on a last minute telephone decision, to go to a funeral and without even having visited the website. I find this hotel to be generally bad, outdated, too big, low standard in everything. The location is bad, the rooms are dark and big but not confortable, it's meant for tasteless business travelers. I'd say it is one of the worst hotels I've ever stayed in, mostly because of its total lack of charm: huge, enormous reception with lots of shinny, golden stuff all over but you can't really figure out your way to the elevator. The staff was Ok but there was a convention going on in the hotel so mostly every energy was directed towards that organisation. Not really my style, my son didn't want to stay, he couldn't even believe it was a hotel when we arrived (he's 6). Of course we were not traveling for pleasure so it had to do but I wouldn't stay here again, even if was for free.
We desliked it, but it's not to say you won't get a good night sleep or that it's dirty or anything really bad. It's just totally charmless and cold. I am an architect so this could also have an influence on my opinion: it's one of the uggliest buildings I've ever seen, so uninteresting and lacking all functionality, bad detaling, bad construction, it's totally depressing.
