Really liked this hotel - room was compact and comfortable. Throughout the hotel had lots of art on display. Modern TVs you can stream from your phone on. Location is great and minutes walk to lots of good restaurants or shopping. Staff were friendly although an issue with my bill did take nearly 2 weeks to rectify, but does not change the overall positive stay.

Wouldn't stay here again. Good location, but that was about it. Small room especially for the price. Tiny bathroom. Sure it's maybe the location and a small hotel. But it was also very dusty like the room has not been cleaned in a while. Parking is a total pain. If the parking lot is full, you have to drive around and then find out you need to park across the road. All in all, a super expensive hotel stay, and one we won't return to.
