us1 night family trip
Good 6.0
Room was very musty, like it hadn't been used in a long time. The room was very warm and the only way to cool it off was to open the windows. The room had no clock, had to ask for wash clothes and hand towels. The staff were helpful and pleasant. The hotel name changed but never had any notification.

London Stay
The TV never worked since day one, even two people were trying to fix it. The nite stand was not working when I got in the room the first day. The towel set was always missing one or two towels. The information from the staff was conflicting. One told me the taxi fee was flat rate 45 pounds to airport. When the time I asked them to call to book the taxi, another staff told me was 50 pounds and they accepted credit card. When the time I paid, the taxi driver refused to accept card and said the fee is 60 pounds. The staff should get their information straighten out and recommend a better and honest taxi company to service there. The room was really small when comparing it with other hotels within the same grade.
