Stayed for 3 nights to attend a conference at the hotel. Hotel is located about 20 minutes from the airport but is probably another 15-20 minutes to the city center. So, depending on your perspective this can be great (for conference) or inconvenient (tourist). There is nothing much around the hotel that warrants exploration. The hotel appears to be well maintained with supportive staff (adequate); the room is rather small (too many doors - there are 3 within the room itself) which made me feel a little claustrophobic. Room contained a good size safe (that fitted a lap top), well-stocked mini bar and free wireless internet service - thank you. The hotel housed 3 restaurants that provided amply-sized portions of good food that was also well-priced. The conference facilities were well laid out and well supported by the staff. There is a small gym (probably too small for the size of the hotel) but was under-used during my stay. All in all, a fine hotel for a conference but would have liked it better if it was more centrally located.
