    Location was excellent. Room size was decent.

    Toilet didn't flush properly (not ideal) and no toilet plunger was provided. Bed was not terrible but not particularly comfortable either. It felt lumpy No wall hangers for coats although there was one small wardrobe. Overall could have been much better

    The location is excellent. Recent renovations have made this hotel more modern and comfortable.

    There is no fitness room. The continental breakfasts are horrible.

    The most uncomfortable bed I have ever slept in. It slanted down at one corner.

    Great location

    The place did not have air conditioning and there was under construction. The windows were sealed shut. Horrible experience!!!

    Something fishy about this place

    A pervasive odor of fish permeates this place, apparently due to their breakfast menu. But it lasts all day and night.
