“Not the greatest hotel”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 29, 2005

I had to change rooms 4 times the first night I got there. Water was out on one side of the hallway, yet they kept giving me rooms on that side. The hotel was in a good location however.

I was booked in here because the Sheraton was full up. It is a proper 4 or 5 star hotel with all the facilities you expect, well run clean, nice staff. Colour scheme a bit too brown for my liking but it is kept very well and I was impressed. The food in their cafe/restaurant was terrific. Worth a trip on its own.
