Lack of staff really showed. Valet parked my car the first day. Low floor, nightclub music really made an impact. And breakfast room service order was never collecting. Disappointing overall, but on check out the staff did try to resolve which was nice.

The location of the hotel was outstanding. I understand it’s an old building but we were in a room with water damage. We informed the front desk and they just sent maintenance up to take a look. We were told that they would fix it after we had left. The spa and pool were located on the roof with a great view! The spa turned off every 3 mins. But the breakfast was very good.
