I heard a lot of great reviews of this hotel from my business colleagues. However, I must say that I was not impressed. The rooms are nice and clean. The pub on the first floor has good service, good selection, fun atmosphere. Besides that, I can't find anything positive. Negatives: (1) they sell the "executive package" which I took and includes free internet, cocktails and canapés, and full breakfast. My flight left at 5am, so the breakfast was out of the question - no big deal. I wanted to print out my boarding pass, but when I got to the "free internet", I found it was in the executive lounge, and all the computers were being used. What a pile of hooey is that? (2) When I got to my room, I plugged in my adapter (that I have used for the past 6 mos. or so in many countries), and there was a huge spark and all the power in the room went out - I later saw a huge black mark on my adapter and MELTED part of it! I have no idea why or how this happened, but business travelers know that if their computer blows, they are up @*#( creek without a paddle. When I told the management about this, they apologized and gave me a replacement adapter. (3) I asked for a 2:00am wakeup call for my 5:00am flight, but they didn't call. When I (thankfully) woke up myself and brought this to the attention of the desk staff, they did not seem the least bit concerned, and when I mentioned the adapter incident, they said they knew about this but it was not the hotel's fault. (4) On the way to the airport in their shuttle (ok that is another positive), I told the driver I would not be staying at their hotel again unless it changed. He went off on me, telling me that he is only a driver and he has no control over what happens in the hotel. I would think he would ask me to give them another try, or say he would bring my concerns to management.
