Many previous guests were dissatisfied with the parking facilities offered at this hotel, with comments regarding the lack of security, cost and inability to reserve a space.

Minor concerns with maintenance and cleanliness

Some reviewers felt the hotel could do better with maintenance and cleanliness, with several descriptions of rooms that sound less than satisfactory in terms of housekeeping and comments on the state of the hotel's elevator. On the other hand, there are many previous guests who found the rooms spacious, clean and well-appointed and the hotel overall very appealing.

Some issues with check-in time

A few previous guests arrived to find that their room was not yet ready, despite their being within the timeframe for check in. As the hotel offers luggage storage it was not an enormous inconvenience, but the situation was less than ideal for those in it.
