Great location, remode in progress in city center
Posted May 29, 2016 on Hotels
The atmosphere was a work in progress due to construction. The room (obviously recently remodeled) was very nice and quite comfortable. The location is great. My other experiences were less pleasant.My room was not available to check in when I arrived at 3:35 (check-in time is 3) and while I didn't have to wait too long, it was inconvenient as I planned to drop my things off and head back out as soon as possible. I had to walk my bag upstairs because the elevator was being worked on by the construction crew. I might suggest doing that before the check-in time, when people would not have been coming and going with baggage. On the morning I checked out, after returning from an errand I found that there was an electrician in my room doing some kind of (non-urgent) work. He did rather quickly leave but I thought this was very odd. Again, why do this before I check out if checkout time is 11 and check-in at 3? There was also some very loud sawing outside my room at 7:45 one morning. That isn't too early, and I am usually up well before that, but international travel can do some weird things to one's sleep schedule and I was looking forward to getting some extra rest. Once again, it would have been more considerate to wait until later. Most of the issues seemed linked to the ongoing renovations, so I would definitely try the hotel again. I presume it will be fantastic after all renovations are done.
