It was easy to get to from the train. It was in a great location and the restaurant was phenomenal. The lift is out, so be prepared to tote luggage 6 flights on narrow stairs. The beds sre definitely stacked and the lockers are to small for even a carry on case

Overall I really enjoyed my stay. The only issue I had was that the bed in the room I was assigned was already occupied. Then, when they moved me to another room, the bed was occupied again. I think the staff should make more of an effort to ensure that the space will be clear once the visitor arrives. Other than that, a really positive experience.
