Checked-in for overnight stay. given a disabled queen bed standard room as hotel fully booked. Reception desk staff efficient and polite as expected. Complimentary late check-out provided automatically.
Door automatically opens - but cannot be closed manually (and remains open for a good minute or so, leaving the entire room open). Mysterious poltergeist opened the door a few minutes after settling in - worked out likely one of the housekeeping staff on a quick scan of the hallway. Facilities clean and tidy. Marble bathroom tabletop welcome, and faux marble tiles complete the look. Room certainly disabled-friendly, with low firm bed, shower chair and completely flat layout. However, toilet flush unusually difficult to press, requiring a very firm push to flow. Shower head in this particular room a mis-matching cream plastic to the metal fittings (perhaps replacing a previously broken one).
Personally, bed was slightly firm for my taste. Pillows all soft, head sinking deep. Swivel chair and footstool in the room was a welcome resting spot while reading. TV large but missing a few key (cable channels), but all digital television channels available and clear. Shower water pressure remarkably low - perhaps to avoid spraying the entire bathroom, but a dissatisfying warm shower in such cold weather. No bath in disabled room (as expected).
Doorman at night impolite and brusque when inquiring regarding whereabouts of taxi rank. Morning doorman opposite. Check-out efficient. Overall a pleasant stay, but does not live up to expectations in this particular room. Old-school charm with standard facilities, lacking something special.
