We stayed here for one night on a West Coast trip to tour Franz Josef Glacier. I was very impressed with the room...we booked the Superior King. The bed was very comfortable and the room was super modern with nice TV. The location is perfect too...many bars & restaurants within walking distance of the hotel.
I didn't give this hotel an Excellent rating for three reasons: no balconies on the King suites (seems to me the superior rooms would all have balconies), no heated blanket on the bed (which seems to be standard everywhere else we stay) and because you only get 60 minutes of free Wi-Fi (again, less than what we have received at other hotels in the area).
All in all though, very nice hotel. Clean, well-maintained rooms...I would stay here again.
