Great location. We only stayed one night and it was a late check-in. Suited us very well. It was pleasing to have reception staff at the late hour. Room was stylish and comfortable.

Had to pry door open myself. Got card validated. Morning wake up call from house keeping at 9am. All round not good. Never again.
