Very disappointing, dirty room and bathroom. Didn’t meet standards expected. After first day the issues raised stilll hadn’t been addressed . We found there was a lot of areas within the hotel that needed attention - the lobby dirty and dusty, elevators dusty. A lot of staff didn’t seem to be able to keep up with customer demand on two occasions when we visited the restaurant for breakfast service, also I found dirty crockery, low and no food available, and dirty beverage area. I wouldn’t want to stay there again under the cleanliness issue that we accounted.

Great location. The hotel promotes spectacular views of the city on their website but the windows were so filthy you struggled to see anything.
