All in all it was a wonderful stay. The hotel itself was older than most but is pretty well maintained. Staff was very cordial and helpful (as I was able to glean while observing them in action). Some tips I may impart with: #1 breakfast while plentiful (nice assortment of hot and cold continental style) can get very crowded especially if on long wknds as when I had gone. The lines were discouraging enough for me to pass up on, as posted signs discouraged the taking of food to eat in ones room (only applies to breakfast, guests are free to bring in outside food and the in room kitchenettes encourages this). #2 this hotel is situated in business district so public transport is not very close by but, I did overhear the front desk making arrangements with a guest to provide shuttle transport to nearest public bus stop (arrangements must also be made for free airport transfer). #3 Ice is located on every other fl (4 floors which includes ground) so fi you are on floor 3 (as I was) and 1 you are better off going to ground floor as the 2nd floor requires you circumvent the entire building to access it.
