Central location downtown. Walkable to Stephen Avenue for city vibes and night life. However, in the evening, a lot of partygoers (and possibly call girls) within the block or even in front of the hotel. Our room was clean but was very warm. We stayed a couple nights in late August. Outside temperature was about 24C the first day and about 14C the second day. Both days our room temperature remained at 23C!!! Very hard to fall and/or stay asleep! Woke up sweating both nights! Had maintenance come in a couple times but climate problem was unresolved! Also, valet parking is $45 per day. One night we needed our car at midnight. Called front desk hoping to have the car ready ahead of us going down, held for 15 minutes with no answer. When we finally went down, we saw 2 staff at front desk so not sure why no one picked up the phone when we called. Waited another 10 minutes for our car. Overall, for the price of the stay, I would not recommend the hotel.
