Disliked: Cleanliness, staff & service, amenities, property conditions & facilities
Terrible service. They seem desperately understaffed. You walk through the hotel and it sometimes feel like no one even works there. Also the staff they do have are badly trained, so the overall level of service is no way near what you’d expect from this level of hotel. Save your money and stay at the nearest Holiday Inn.

Great location. In normal times it would have been perfect. Unfortunately there was hotel construction Mon-Sat 10am to 4pm and it was very noisy and disruptive. You couldn't sit in the lounge and have a conversation it was that bad.
