Hi Doris Thank you for our guest review. We do not offer daily housekeeping service due to COVID and reducing the amount of touch access points within the building. We would of happily assisted you though if this was a requirement. I would always encourage you to liaise with reception for assistance. Regards Christine

We upgraded to a 1 bedroom apartment and earlier check in - which by the way, we didn’t use, for an extra $20 and it totally wasn’t worth it. So for $175, we stayed in what can only be described as a box. No room to swing a cat in. Not impressed.

Thank you for sharing your review and experience. Further to our telephone conversation today I sincerely apologies that our 1 Bedroom Suite was not to your personal satisfaction. Our 1 Bedroom Suites are over 344sq which I would consider to be quiet well appointed for a hotel. We always encourage guests to liaise with our reception team if they are unhappy in anyway upon checkin or during your stay so we can address your concerns immediately. We do hope to welcome you back in the future. Regards Christine
