    The Lobby is neat and classy. The Pump Room is a fun and interesting restaurant.

    The Hotel services are lacking. No help with luggage, we had to request to get our room cleaned at 4:00 PM, we requested a room service menu and 2 not get one the 2 days we were there. We were charged twice for breakfast the day we checked out. The staff, especially the "manager" we spoke lacked professionalism. On the day our room was being cleaned at 4:00 PM the "manager" said he would take care of the beverages we had in the Library Bar while we waited for a clean room, but we were charged for those. The manger called my cell while we were at dinner and said he sent a note to our room. When we returned to the room there was not note. Poor follow thru and poor communication. They call themselves a 4 star hotel but have 1 star service.

    Location great and staff really friendly and helpful.

    Think $12.95 for in room internet access (2MB) is not good value for money - especially considering the speed provided. Although there was free internet access in the business centre but this gets very busy.

    Staff services and location was excellent.

    Wash Basin was broken. No locker in the Room.

    The staff were extremely friendly and helpful, and did their best to assist while we were trapped abroad due to the volcanic eruption. The hotel is generally quiet and well-kept. Very good value hotel in a prime location

    The rooms could be a little better maintained and there was a leak in the toilet ceiling.

    The location was excellent.

    The hotel room was on the line of a LaQuinta Inn, low budget, very very old unclean carpet, bathtub was old, dirty, and the water wouldn't drain from running the shower so I couldn't take a shower and let that nasty water(fungus, bacteria, ect) build up around my feet and ankles. The room and entire floor was a big disappointment. Additionally, the hotel phone in the room did not work at all. I had to call the front desk from my cell phone. What a dump of a place! I absolutely would not recommend this place ever.

    Nice hotel close to centre of town and also close to beach which is nice for walking or jogging. Half a mile from Rush street which has nice restaurants.

    The hotel lobby is beautiful, the room was clean and comfortable and in a perfect location for my needs - 2 blocks from family.

  • Single

    Apart from the fact that they told me they cannot take the accommodation cost from the credit card that I submitted to Booked.net unless I sent them the credit card payment approval form and the second day they locked my door, they were fair in service as everywhere in the United States.

    The method of communication was strange.

    I liked how there wasn't any noise from an "el" train. The room was nice for me and my boyfriend.

    There was nothing bad about the hotel

    Checking into the hotel was easy and the staff were very helpful and courteous. The bell and valet men were super helpful and always very kind. The mini bar in the room was fabulous, and the food in the restaurant was good as well. Internet/wifi was free which is a huge plus especially if you don't want to go down to the lobby which also has free internet/wifi. The location was perfect, close to restaurants and shopping, and the neighborhood at night felt safe and very cozy.

    The room service was not 24/7 and neither was the bar/lounge area food.
