I did not stay in this hotel since long time, I really was surprised with the rooms and the service I got. As soon I arrived, I was upgraded to an executive room as part of the priority club benefits. The room was excellent, very good space, very clean and attentive room service. The rooms seems to be renovated recently and the building and hotel facilities are in very good conditions.
The executive lounge was very unique, excellent breakfast with much variety more than you find usually in similar lounges, very helpful staff with great service inside the lounge.
The hotel location is very convenient, inside the main business area. The health club is good as well. And they offer free high speed internet for free.
I recommend this hotel for business travelers.
