The accommodations at the Rox were surprisingly comfortable and unusually large for the expected UK lodging which can be quite restrictive and "cozy" feeling. My room had a kingsize bed and plenty of pillows. The bed was firm and allowed me to fall quickly asleep. I had 2 windows that saw over the rooftops front he 4th floor and even across the dock which was entertaining. The room had a coffee pot which took some getting used to but after a failed trial run I got the hang of it and made a successful cup of hot chocolate.
The breakfast was a typical scrambled eggs, hash browns, roasted tomatoes, sautéed mushrooms, and ham. The coffee was strong and full of flavor, delicious.
Its located only a few blocks from the Union Square and the dock. And although I was told that I shouldn't go through the docks at night, I would return if had the chance. ----Who goes through the docks at night, anyway?!----
