I used to frequent this hotel in the 1970s and 1980s when it was still a grand four star hotel. I love the location, magnificent views, close proximity to ALL MAJOR HIGHWAYS taking you out of town, bypassing the CBD away to all the counlless splendours of one of the SEVEN MODERN WONDERS OF THE WORLD. I agree, the place needs a drastic face lift. There were three floors of students from French Africa to study English - they've left and on my last visit I was more relaxed and could enjoy the grand views from my room. I previously complained about stuffy rooms, but during my last visit - 17 - 20 Aug.,2012, my room smelt fresh. The doors are rather thin, not solid core, so noises from the passage can be disturbing.Your view on the Atlantic seaboard is across well looked after building street blocks of the wealthy retired. You are close to hopping on the glorious RED BUS with different routes where you can hop on and off to your heart's desire, with earphone guidance as you explore this great CITY.
This is value for money so enjoy it and forgive the small discrepancies. If you want to spoil yourself, visit the revolving restaurant at the top, which I discovered decades ago!
