Our third stay at the Churchill Hotel, on the whole very comfortable but I think we must have been in one of the smallest rooms in the building this time, and did not have a “comfortable sitting area and desk” listed on the website – indeed there was no space for them! We also had intermittent issues with the heating and had to request maintenance twice as it was running cold.||Staff were friendly and helpful and we enjoyed the complimentary morning coffee-to-go in the foyer!

I wouldn’t recommend this hotel. The location is great and the staff was very pleasant. The free coffee and water in the lobby was cool. However Im not sure how this is rated a 4 star hotel. It is old. As soon as I walked in my room, it didn’t feel good. The decor is dated and I could tell the renovations are to cover up the decay of the building. The ceilings are falling apart, the vents are filthy and I can see where this place is falling apart. When I returned late evening, the lobby attendant was listening to trap music. It wasn’t all bad, The linen was changed, they made my bed, and they have black out curtains. But I would’ve changed hotels if I had the time and energy.
