When I stay in a hotel for work I judge hotels on four main things.
Hotel provides a single Wi-Fi code which will work for the duration of your stay. If you check out a bit later on though you might need to ask for another. This was convenient and I didn't need to keep entering the code, and it worked on my phone AND laptop. Speed was fine for what I was doing though it did drop out a couple of times around 5.30pm-6pm, I guess this was when it was being hammered by guests. I was happy with this service.
The room was modern and clean. Safe, hairdryer, iron and ironing board provided as standard; not sure what the flat thing in the bathroom was that plugged in to the wall - from a distance I thought it was some kind of trouser press but it didn't open up and had no markings or buttons that I could see! I was given a smoking room at first but they were able to switch me to a non smoking room - make sure you specify this as this would be an altogether different review - the smoking room stank. I was happy with the room.
Pillows were a bit spongy and firm for my liking, I want to sink in to them. No noise from outside which is good because some hotels (much more expensive) are right on the tram tracks. Air conditioning worked fine and did not keep me awake.
There is a gym in the basement with a reasonably modern Technogym Cross Trainer, Bike and Rowing Machine, there are also free weights, a bench, some mats and an ab cruncher. For those of you that like looking at yourself there are two mirrors, though they are not really high enough unless you are Warwick Davis. Towels and water are provided, I would have preferred water bottles than small cups because you can slot these in to the drinks holder on the machines (I took a stack of cups to make it tall enough to fit). There was music playing and also a mahoooosive TV and remote.
Good for a business traveller, I would stay here again.
