This is the worst hotel of this caliber I have ever stayed in, the service was awful and rooms very cheaply decorated, it was not worth the $$ paid even at a discount rate.

Room not as advertised/photos very misleading. Number of features mentioned on site not offered. City views from balcony we paid a premium for were of a car park at rear of hotel. Outdoor area cover in spider webs and fair sized red back spider living indoor jam. Also due to COVID house keeping did not tend to room for entirely of 5 day stay.

The city view room was lovely and the bed and linen were so comfortable. The staff were welcoming and helpful. We were staying there to attend a nearby hospital the parking on site and 3pm late checkout made our difficult time much easier
