          Hi I am staying at the hotel next weekend for my boyfriend and mine anniversary. We booked a standard room but are wondering if we should upgrade to superior given it's a special occasion? Is there a big difference in terms of comfort. Should we wait until we arrive to upgrade or would that be too late. Is there a charge for the private car park in union Quay? Thanks
