Gym was in good shape and usable. Walking distance to parliament and other local amenities / attractions. Decor / lobby - Was dated but clean Parking - onsite exterior parking was extra cost, would liked to have seen this as part of the stay Elevators - very small Breakfast room - Room was really hot and not big enough at peak time. Options were good for an included breakfast Money back for not getting house service Friday and Saturday was a nice touch.

Disliked: Staff & service, amenities, property conditions & facilities
Property staff were friendly but were able to address any issues with our rooms. We actually moved rooms mid stay and there were issues in both rooms. There were issues with the tv and computer. The toaster also didnt work correctly. The staff could only say they were sorry but didnt really try to resovle our issues. Will not stay here again.
