Stayed in this hotel during a recent business trip. This is a nice hotel. Some of the staff are very helpful/welcoming, namely John (the bell man/porter, many thanks for your shuttle service and general willingness to always help, above and beyond... a real asset to the hotel) and Tim (the bar tend, very friendly and welcoming when we went in to the bar, in fact probably went in more because of the welcome from Tim). The other staff are not unfriendly but not very helpful at all, to ask about the shuttle for example, seemed like an inconvenience.
The rooms are nice and well kitted out and to a good standard, I was on the tenth floor.
Free in room WiFi was good. Paper at your door every morning. Cleaned daily, no issue.
Pool is of a reasonable size (this was the main reason that I chose this over the nearby Park Plaza which has a very small pool). I had it all to myself at 07:00 which was great.
There was quite a bit of construction work (which a large sign says will be completed by 15 Oct 2012), which meant that a lot of the foyer/reception was wrapped in plastic, a lot of dust a the door due to the works. Short term, but still slightly took the shine of what will probably be a nice hotel.
In summary, a good hotel which I'm sure will be even better when the revamp is completed. Some excellent staff, but some staff let this hotel down.
