Great location. No maintance - elevators not working, outside doors inoperative, ignored requests to repair to avoid loud door banging all night, garbage left in room for dats despite asking for it to be removed, understaffed restaurant (staff actually complained to us!), manager smug and uncaring, large minibar charge despite no minibar use - not refunded!!
