It was not my first stay at this hotel. My husband and I were staying in the City for the SMH Half Marathon.
Because of the hotel upgrade (the construction), the lobby has been moved to one of the shops. It has been done tastefully and is functional, in spite of the in-out traffic going through the check-in/out area.
The check in went smoothly, we asked for a late check out and it wasn't a problem and the room was ready, too.
We booked a city side room, there was construction going on below, but the noise was minimal.
I love the bed linen, clean and pleasant to sleep in.
It would be nice if the toilet bowls would be cleaned under the rim, as well - took me about 20 antibacterial wipes to clean it.
We left our key card at the reception when we left for the run and when we returned, the lady at the reception organised a concierge to let us into the room and to check our identity. I appreciate their approach to security.
Regarding the online booking process: there were two prices for the same room type with no clear difference. Would be nice if Expedia would make sure to state why one would pay more (about $20) for the same room.
