Our flight was delayed so we didn't arrive until 2am, I was thrilled that reception were happy to check us in immediately and leave getting our details & guarantee until the next morning when I was feeling a bit more fresh.
I stayed here for two nights, the room was huge and spotless and also had a MASSIVE tv with the ability to connect your own devices to so (travelling with my ps3) I was thrilled with that..
I guess in terms of the decor, it just comes down to personal taste - for me the all white minimalism of the rooms felt a bit soulless for a three day stay.
The thing which stopped me rating this hotel with 4* was that housekeeping consistently couldn't grasp that the Do Not Disturb sign hanging on my door meant that I didn't want people going in my room, whether they worked at the hotel or not.
Breakfast was OK but the 24 room service which they proudly offer simply didn't exist - I tried to ring through to them for about 15 minutes - and location wise, if you're starving at 1am, then good luck finding anywhere..
It's fine, I just feel that if the staff weren't being commercially led in to battle by a company as Mercure, then they'd be a little bit lost..
I didn't pay for my stay so I'm not rating it's value.
