The state of the hotel
This was our second stay in 10 years. The stay was very dissappinting, I had to park my car outside the hotel risking being mugged by thugs who roamed around. The hotels rooms had water leaks in the bathroom and some doors difficult to open. Please separate shower from bathtub. The name was rude and wanted to close whilst patrons we're having drinks. I had to call the supervisor.

8/10 Very Good

It is sometimes the little things that can make a
Chose to stay at the Hotel mainly because of its proximity to the ICC where I was attending a Conference.The website showed it was very close and within walking distance. I must respectfully disagree and suggest all distances to other venues be reviewed. For me coffee in the room is most important. No milk was provided and all when it was it was far too little. All attempts to rectify this through the staff were unsuccessful. Unable to sign extras to the room unless one has a "credit" ? Not advised of this when I checked in. In fact it was confirmed that I could sign drinks etc to the room and settle bill when I left. But overall an enjoyable and comfortable stay with friendly staff.

8/10 Very Good

The elevators were nice for the view. The staff was generally pleasant, a few a little pushy in hinting for tips. The free wifi is not so free after you use up the small amount they provide. It makes me think of bait and switch.
