Got a great room rate from [...]but put at end of corridor next to Staff Only access to stairwell.The bedroom was located against this end wall, and throughout the night these doors were banging and the sound reverberating through the room. We
booked 2 rooms and the other room was thick with cigarette smell even though all were meant to be non smoking. Street parking around the area is not cheap, so I put the car in Valet parking. Although we would book a time for the car to be brought up, it never was and we would have to request it and wait. The $22 per day was quite dear considering there is at least 1 other good hotel with free parking. Staff at Reception were overall very pleasant, but they are quite young and one was often impatient. The hotel is in a great spot, but check where your room is first.
Hotel features (5 = best, 1 = worst):
Short walk from hotel
Great cafe only 50m or so along the street-lovely staff and good range of food/coffee. Gluten free available too.
