If you don't need a hotel in the centre of the city with all the associated "glamour" and cost, the Best Western is quite adequate. It's run as a business along with the Holiday Inn next door, so BW guests get to use the HI facilities (restaurant, Gym, sauna, bar etc) at no additional cost and anything can be cross charged to your room from there. Which is probably just as well really, as the BW has no restaurant and the bar can normally be described as "empty and devoid of soul".
Nothing wrong with the breakfast in the BW, although it's slightly limited in choice compared to the HI. Although you're not likely be troubled by hoards of foreign bus tourists who invade for a night or two and clog up the facilities. NH and and Park Plaza, this means you.... The staff and normally very helpful. On-site parking is limited, although the parking garage can only be entered once you've checked in - you need your keycard to open it.
The rooms are ok, nothing special - a little spartan but quite acceptable for a few nights. If the room is unused for longer periods they turn the heating off, but the radiators soon warm it up. The desk has enough power sockets for working away from the office, and tea/coffee facilities are provided. More than 1 sachet of coffee per day would be nice in a double room, though. The rooms have recently had minor make-over with faux wooden floors; i preferred it when the rooms were carpeted. The room is always clean, as is the bathroom. Although why there is a shaving/make-up mirror above the toilet, i have no idea.
The low corporate rate means that i'll probably be back again soon. But i'd prefer to stay in the HI if i had a choice.
