I have stayed here 3 times recently all as part of a large business group and overall am very happy.
Location is good, central to town and easy to find, with free underground secure parking. With shopping center (mall) as part of the complex.
Staff are friendly and helpful and all interactions with them were good. The bedrooms are very good. I have always had a large king room and they are well appointed, with a very nice bathroom. The pool is a little small for proper swimming, but the general fitness equipment and spa area if rather good.
The meeting rooms are reasonably good. Basically multipurpose function rooms which can be split any way you like. The only complaint from a business perspective was the WiFi which was terrible - couldn't connect, very slow, frequent disconnection. There was almost 100 of us and everyone had problems using it. Not good enough for a business hotel in today's business world when connectivity is essential.
Food was very good... we all had breakfast lunch and dinner there for 2 days. The breakfast was excellent, with a particularly friendly and welcoming Maitre d'. Dinner (function room, not restaurant) was typical hotel wedding/corporate stuff. Nice, but nothing special. I suspect the main restaurant is much nicer.
