I have been coming to this hotel fir many years in association with a conference I attend.
Over the last several years they have undated much of the building.
My room was clean, they were very friendly at check in and much of the staff is always very friendly.
I also noticed that many of the staff have been their for several years, which to me is a very god sign. If they treat their employees well then they will treat their guests well. That has been the case with HIBTB.
The food in the restaurant was very good.
My only complaint would be the server in the bar. He was in attentive and almost surly. Several if us went in when it was at busy and he appeared to be bothered by the fact that we were there and in no hurry to wait on us.
So we left and went down the street to another.
But I really consider this minor and will not hesitate to stay here again and recommend it.
