Stayed here for a Conference & the locations couldn't be better if that is why you are choosing it. Literally only a 5 min walk to the Convention Center. Perfect. Very endearing 'old fashioned' charm/decor that you definitely wouldn't find in the surrounding big 'cookie-cutter' hotels.
However, the rooms do seem to be on the small side (mine & a few of my colleagues who were also staying here had the same comment) & the air is all centrally controlled. The a/c was set to 'bone-chilling' & there was no way to adjust it or even open the windows to warm the room up. The only thing I could do was close the air vent to stop any air at all coming into the room which took the chill off but didn't exactly warm the room up. Thankfully I was staying in a 2 bed room so I just took the bedding off the other bed & bundled up to get to sleep.
The Vietnamese restaurant downstairs was amazing (recommend the Ahi Tuna & Mango wrap) but I was also a bit dissapointed that the 'Ghost Lounge' was closed for all 4 days that I was here. Hopefully this opens again soon as I had been looking forward to enjoying a drink there after a day of lectures.
