                      The room was very spacious and the bed excellent. Free wifi.

                      The fitness centre was the worst one I have ever seen and it shouldn't be allowed to be called "a fitness centre."

                      The staff in the restuarant accommodated us at breakfast.

                      They had already given away all of the rooms in the category that I reserved before we checked in. We were given a lesser room instead of an upgrade.

                      I was in Room 715 - end of the hall. There was a continuous noise of air or water that ran all night, coming from somewhere near the AC vent. The otherwise quiet and restful atmosphere of the hotel was somewhat marred.

                      The front desk staff was very helpful.

                      I was disappointed in my room. It had poor lighting. The layout of the hotel with outdoor access to the rooms made it feel like a motor lodge. I was expecting a more luxurious hotel, but it felt a little rundown and in need of maintenance.

                      Location

                      Mainly poor quality service. It wasn't bad but it was far from good. Bar that closes early and impossible to get a drink (other then water) after that. On arrival we couldn't have lunch outside because of a party so had to sit inside even though the weather was great which we wanted to enjoy. Email with boarding pass was sen't to somebody that had left for the day and therefore I had sent it again to somebody still on duty. For an hotel that claims to be high quality there is a lot to be done. Facilities are a bit outdated but that can be compensated by great service. Long way to go!

                      Great value for money during weekends. Always ask to be in the Tower building.

                      Very expensive during week days. There are non-tower buildings (should buildings) that are significantly worse. Be sure to stay in the tower.

                      The heat in the suite could nor be regulated and there was no heat in the sitting area. The sink bowl and facet were not properly installed as it required you to waste water just to rinse anything off.

                      Very good location, confort and facilities.

                      The front desk didn`t find my booked reservation twice, when I did the check in and when I did the check out, they asked sorry twice,

                      Courteous staff.

                      The thermostat in our room didn't work properly. (Check #604.) It either blasted heat or a/c, but didn't stop when the selected temperature was reached. Otherwise, the room was good.

                      The good discount price, service and staffs are very helpful, especially the shuttle bus service.
