This hotel is in a good location, and the staff are pleasant and friendly. That's the good news.
Whoever designed the rooms and decor needs to go back to college - it is dreadful. The room in which I am writing now - in the dark - is south facing. From dawn until about 4pm it is either in blackout or it is an oven. This is made worse by the fact that the single curtain across the room-wide floor to ceiling window only opens in one direction, and as a result it is impossible to allow light in while shading yourself from the sun. And so we play pit-pony all day - horrible.
The rooms are, I suppose, visually stylish, but as a career hotel resident (>150 nights a year) I hate stylish rooms. What I want is somewhere to sit -comfortably - and somewhere to work - comfortably - and lights IN THE CEILING so I can see what I'm doing.
The rooms here are appalling in my humble view, and I would not stay here - ever - by choice. There is no coffee maker in the room - you can have one if you call and ask for it, although there is free coffee in the lobby from 0600 to 1000. This is fine, but if you are in from Europe you are wide awake and wanting to work at about 0400, and unless you happen to have read the letter enclosed with your room key (honestly, who does?) you won't now about the coffee machine on request.
I was kept awake most of my first night because of a party in the room next door, as the walls are paper-thin. Calling reception, I was told that they would send security up. Maybe they did, maybe they didn't, but the noise continued, and I am still waiting for a manager to contact me and say something about the disturbed night. I don't think the night staff even logged the problem. This epitomises the problem with this hotel - lots of style, but the basics of being a hotel are not even attempted.
Horrible - please let this evening come quickly so I can get out of here!
