I stayed here one night to go to the theatre and the location is superb. Mostly everything was fine with the hotel. The staff were helpful and friendly. The room (318) was small with a small double bed, two bath robes and one face flannel. On the whole it was well equipped although the shower was in the bath tub. I was flattered that the wardrobe had ordinary good quality hangars.
Breakfast was the sort you would expect at this type of hotel..In other words there was the horrible looking dying cooked breakfast buffet. It was improved by a chef there to make fresh eggs. However when I asked for two fried ones he pointed to a greasy plate of eggs that he had fried some time in the past. When I insisted on new ones he fried about twelve, gave me two and put the rest on the plate to die with the others.. I have seen egg chefs at much busier hotels cook all eggs to order.
There remains the problem of WiFi. At his hotel you get one hour free and it must be consecutive. They may think this is generous but I think it is so restrictive as too be hardly better than nothing. The hotel should provide free WiFi and that should be the end of it.
I think that soon when choosing where to stay on line people will look for free WiFi long before considering loyalty points.
