It is every close to the convention centre if your attending conferences. Bed super comfy. Wasnt told about needing to pay for parking until I asked at check in. The aircon in room wasn’t working properly. The spa was out of order. My partners brand new electric razor was missing from our room when checked out.

6/10 Good

For the cost of the room we felt it should have been better appointed. Little details like having a choice of teas or a pen to write with. Otherwise it was a satisfactory stay , well located, clean rooms and good linen on the beds.
