I travel a lot for work and so when on holidays, like to stay in places that don't have the sterile feel of your usual Hilton/Hyatt.
After reading the reviews of The Benjamin on Trip Advisor, my wife & I decided to stay there for the night. As previously reviewed, the staff were friendly, rooms were nice and breakfast fantastic.
It is located in a great part of town, with plenty of restaurants/bars close by.
If you do decide to stay there, ring the hotel and ask them to organise a pick up from the airport. We didn't, and paid a lot more than we should have.
