I stayed here in one of my business trips. The hotel is quite new with excellent rooms and breakfast. A la carte restaurant offers a good choice of meals if you are not into going out for dinner. Location is very good for business (less drive time than from other hotels) and for leisure(proximity to major sights). The hotel should train their staff to be performing flawlessly as the brand they represent requires. At checkin time i was waiting 10 minutes in front of the receptionist without being told my room was not ready. When i asked him what are we waiting for he said very surprised "for your room". He didn't provide any information or update during waiting process and in the end his manager had to come and offer me a complimentary coffee while waiting. Generally the reception staff is very confused about many of the questions you ask them. Also, in the breakfast i find it quite rude to be inquired by the staff "another one?" when asking for a second coffee (which btw at the breakfast is not so good as it is at the bar).
Rooms are very nice with huge TV and comfortable bed and pillows. Cleanliness is also something to appreciate compared with other hotels in the city.
Overall the hotel needs to work a lot on staff training in order to align with the rest of the things that are great.
