This hotel is a long established, well known Wellington Hotel.The room were given was comfortable but needs updating and needed maintenance for a squeaky sliding bathroom door and central AC was cranky and noisy but both were sorted when reported. The outlook of the room we were given was not great overlooking a rooftop and another tower.the corridors of the hotel were not heated and a bit chilly walking from lift to bedroom, left to breakfast room.The breakfast staff were brilliant topping up coffees and clearing dishes. The buffet was extensive but both days the omelette station guy was missing from duty.The lobby has an afternoon piano player which is entertaining but unfortunately the lobby is a main thoroughfare for commenters and shoppers jumping between streets which makes it a constant flow of folks who do not stay in the hotel.Overall we had higher expectations for such a well known centrally located hotel and were a bit disappointed.
