I travel so much for work that I just expected this to be another average hotel ... but I was pleasantly surprised! The outside of the hotel is a bit bland and dated but the inside is stylish and updated. My room is clean and well appointed and I writing this review on the FREE Wi-Fi... a luxury often not provided by more expensive hotels. Additionally, the staff have been incredibly friendly, welcoming and accommodating... including faxing a few items off for me free of charge. The icing on the cake are the leisure facilities... again, usually not included in a hotel in the price bracket.
My only niggle is that it's quite easy to hear the outside world so if there are some loud drunks outside you'll hear them. (And I'm on the 7th floor!)
That being said, I can HIGHLY recommend this hotel and if you are planning a trip to the area you will not go wrong staying here!
(P.S. I bagged quite a bargain on lastminute.com)
