Enjoyable on-site dining

Although the breakfast at this hotel is not exactly a feast, guests say the food is of a good standard. Plus, there are different choices available from day to day. The menu, service, and rates at the Savory Downtown Restaurant also attract favorable remarks,.

Negative Reviews

Temperamental air-conditioning

Reviews indicate that the air-conditioning units in the hotel rooms can be a little temperamental. So temperamental, in fact, that it doesn't appear to work at all in some rooms. The staff is on hand to provide fans if necessary, but this is clearly a source of disappointment for some guests.

Occasional noise complaints

Some of the rooms at this hotel seem to be subject to some traffic noise from a nearby four-way intersection. Also, some guests report that they were able to hear noise from within the property.

Tricky to navigate with luggage

This hotel doesn't have an elevator, so guests who are allocated a room on an upper floor have to navigate split level stairs. Staff, although otherwise helpful, will not necessarily be available to assist with luggage.
