I have been to this hotel 3 times for business trips (October 2018, Jan 2019, June 2019) and have never been disappointed. Good location and excellent customer service from check in to departure on most of my trips. The rooms are small, with TV and internet service that is sporadic at times. Room service choices were limited, but there is a fridge and a grocery store within walking distance that i was able to get snack and wine much cheaper than through the hotel. Try to get a room on the same side as the main entrance as that had the best view of all the rooms I had.
The fitness are is small as is the pool and the jacuzzi only worked on one of my trips.
The hotel itself was nice and also clean. The rooms were ok in size. The bathrooms were small and lacking counter space. Had one meal in the restaurant which was less than satisfactory. Staff was very pleasant.
