This hotel appears at first sight to be cavernous and typically anonymous and international. This is not so; all the staff make a huge effort to engage and manage to call you by name from day 1. I stayed for 15 days and was upgraded to the Red floor (14). This had a large lounge staffed by a team who went out of their way to make my stay easier. There was always a cup of coffee available, a glass of wine appeared in the evening, they found me a charger for my phone and changed my car to the airport. More than that, they seemed to be genuinely interested in my day. Sadly I couldn't oblige with discussion on the merits of UK football teams or the royal family but I appreciated the effort they made. Likewise when I obviously wanted to work they left me in peace.
The breakfast buffet was one of the most comprehensive I have experienced as was the dinner. Sunday brunch was reported by my colleagues as excellent. The location is not great but taxis are so cheap its not hard to go out to eat/ go shopping etc.
