Some features of rooms are disappointing
Although the rooms here are typically described as clean, there do appear to be a few disappointments. Guests have found the rooms small and note that standard rooms offer a limited selection of amenities. Those missed most often include microwaves and mini-fridges.
Noisy and poorly performing air-con
Guests haven’t been overly impressed with the in-room air-conditioning units. The most commonly reported problem is that the units are noisy but guests also occasionally find the units inefficient.
Parking could be improved
Previous guests have been rather disappointed with the parking facilities here. Those who chose to avoid the rather high fee for valet parking report that the parking lot is quite difficult to navigate. Also, it seems that the garage elevator regularly breaks down so you may face a lengthy walk.
