Very comfortable rooms- spacious, great large screen tv, good decor and really comfortable bed. Great location- you can walk to most attractions in centre city from here, with great bar/restaurant options in immediate area. Also good gym facility. Number of complimentary small items included - good quality in room coffee, newspapers, fruit really make for a comfortable leisure or business trip. Would definately stay again.
