Nice hotel, friendly and professional staff, clean and close to everything. At the time of my visit they were renovating some rooms but staff did accommodate me away from building noise. Good choice of pillows, soft and hard, and mattress was good too. TV doesn't have many channels and maybe that could be improved, especially on a rainy day when...
