Great experience
Very nice hotel, professional and friendly staff and great location to restaurants, pubs, sites and subway. This was our second time in 2 years. They did not disappoint.

8/10 Very Good

We were very pleased with the size and condition of our room. The staff was friendly and helpful, and the location of the hotel was perfect. The only disappointment was the breakfast offering. We’d expected that there would be a restaurant, rather than a very limited selection of pre-made, unappetizing sandwiches. Fortunately there was a wonderful place nearby where we were able to walk and have breakfast.

Hotel was Great! HOTELS.COM Not so Great
Everything with this Hotel was Great, invluding one of thr Mansgers (Suzette) who went out of her way to be sure everything was good. The problem was that Hotels.com dod not disclose a $19 nightly Destination Fee. I will call Hotels.com for a refund, but that shouldnt be the way it goes. Beware oh Hidden Fees on Hotels.co. site, and ever since Expedia took over.

4/10 Fair

Broken shower head
The shower head was broken and unable to adjust it. I had to use one hand to hold the nozzle and the other hand to wash. Very awkward and disappointing that something like this wasn’t reported and left unfixed. I did report it to Janelle who was the supervisor at the time and she did apologize.
