For a one night stay in a commercial hotel this huge Hampton by Hilton may well fit the bill. It's a generally well designed refit of a disused office block with good bedrooms, bathrooms and adequate public rooms. Hot buffet breakfast was entirely satisfactory but I was lucky enough to get a dining table to use. Other guests were making do at somewhat low coffee tables.
The ground floor entrance is not attended and guests are expected to take 1 of 3 lifts to the 3rd floor and a busy reception counter adjoining the bar and snack servery. Lift access to residential floors is controlled by keycard swipe.
The bedrooms are well equipped and a good size. Not many chains provide an ironing board, iron and hairdryer as well as a kettle, tv and wifi.
The bathrooms have good toiletries and plenty of good towels.
Overall housekeeping is of an acceptable standard. Look closely and some fault can be picked. Minor things such as undusted window ledges, basin overflows uncleaned, sanitary sealant at the shower base not kept pristine, drink spills not wiped from the surface of bar tables.
I didn't pay - my employer did and I reckon the bill paid by my employer was fair value for money.
It's a very big hotel run by polite, efficient hoteliers.
