I spent a couple of nights here on a business trip. The staff were all very capable and helpful, the bed was very comfortable but the place felt a little shabby and in need of a makeover. There was quite a bit of noise in the corridors at night and both nights I was awoken by revellers moving around and calling to each other.
Hogans Beach is a little loud if you are used to the quiet life but is not too bad after you have adjusted to it. The menu is not too exciting but both meals I had were well prepared and very tasty.
The hotel offers free wifi and a free airport shuttle, the latter takes only 5 minutes door to door.
I would stay here again if I was travelling on business but would probably look elsewhere if I had children with me.
