It was so hot in our bedroom we had the ac unit pumping at 18 degrees all night with little effect. It put a negative spin on our stay, everything else was perfect

Picked the towels and amenities option rather than a full service which was a great idea. Any issues got dealt with quickly by the staff, didn’t use the amenities but the location was good for work accessibility. Noisy at night which I suppose is to be expected in the middle of the city.
