                            Convenience and local to train station and city center.

                            No armchairs in our luxury room ! There was a desk with an office chair but as we were on holiday it would have been nice to have an armchair to sit and rest. However we did like the lounge in the foyer.

                            This was truly a luxury visit. The old railroad hotel was very well preserved with a wonderful room and service. It was a treat for us.

                            It would have been nice to have parking managed by the hotel but overall it was convenient and they had very good weekend rates.

                            Excellent value for the price. The bed was super comfortable and the it reminded me of a boutique hotel with plush bed linens and robes. Location was perfect, right in the middle of restaurants and shops. I loved it and would stay here the next time I visit the area.

                            I enjoyed the hot tub and pool as well as the overall architecture of the hotel

                            I was not happy with the small room and needed upgrade in the bathroom for the amount I spent. The deal I found online did not give me the impression for the cost (saving of 50% paying $200+ still) for the room I stayed in. If your going to show a picture of the room being booked then it should be of that room, the picture I saw showed a lounge area in the room - we did not have that in ours, so perhaps a bit more detail in the description to say - room with 2 doubles does not offer a sitting area.

                            Bathroom was not up to the standards of clean that I would have expected. Nightstand light was damaged and when I turned on the light clouds of dust desended on the beverage I had on the nightstand.

                            The hotel should include complementry parking for hotel guests.
