I had to attend a conference over a weekend at this venue and thought that this was the best option. Let me start with the best points:
a It's very reasonably priced;
b The location is central and fantastic;
c The rooms are clean and comfortable with little touches like the honey shampoo and conditioner and the free apples and newspapers;
d The staff are very friendly and helpful;
Really it has everything going for it except for one thing. The nightclub!!
I did read the reviews before going and took the precautions of asking for a room on the top floor and taking earplugs. Ha! Waste of time. I don't believe the windows are double glazed and maybe that would help. Our window was right over an outdoor area where the party continues. It was SO LOUD. The next day I dragged myself to a chemist who gave me some over-the-counter sleeping medication and extra strength ear-plugs. They were just working when at 3am we were awoken by the fire alarm, which, of course, was a false alarm! Just a guess but possibly started by one of the idiots at the nightclub.
I felt so sorry for the staff at the reception desk. They had this sort of hangdog look just waiting for the next barrage of abuse from techy sleep deprived guests as they came out of the elevator.
It's a great hotel and they should really work on the noise problem if they want to attract guests. I'm sorry about my poor rating but the bad outweighed the good I'm afraid.
