Double room 122 , very comfortable & more spacious than 106 where my Sis & Hubby were. Fronts on to the main street so a bit of traffic noise but great location for resturants & $25 Taxi to the airport. Shower was great with lots of hot water - a plus for me. If you are a light sleeper maybe...

Stayed at this hotel with very low expectations with $$ being the main consideration. Was pleasantly surprised, friendly check in staff and nicely renovated bathrooms were a pleasant surprise. It is also just around the corner from Courtney place so dozens of cafes and restaurants within a few minutes walk.
