Convenient location, stunning public areas

Pros: The stunning lounge area, the location and excellent staff.
Cons: The misleading pictures of the bedrooms as seen on the Internet - very misleading as to size. The level of cuisine in the restaurant.
Location: Conveniently located for most tourist attractions. There is an ugly overhead railway running adjacent to the hotel which is noisy.
A disappointing experience due mainly to the very small bedroom and miniscule bathroom. The public areas were stunning, the staff excellent and the location convenient for tourist attractions. The food in the Lockwood Restaurant was poor, so much so that we took a picture of the meal so that friends would know we had not exaggerated.
