Pleasantly surprised. The room was huge and decorated to a very good standard, the service was great, bed was a comfy 6ft with nice bedding, huge soft towels, in short all the things that make for a good stay when you're on business (unless you want a gym, which I don't!)
The breakfast was also very good and the room service (too small for a restaurant) was fine. My reason for giving it 4 stars instead of 5 is that, being an older building, the soundproofing is pretty terrible and I spent much of the night listening to upstairs's conversation.
