The pool & location
A smell in the hallway and our first room- they moved us then though.
I chose this place as a cheaper option than the Westin River North as my son was travelling with me. We had to have a room with 2 beds as whilst he's my son and I love him, we need our own space. Unfortunately it seems the rooms are the same size for one or 2 beds and they are reasonably compact, shall we say. Difficult to find somewhere to put your luggage that isn't in the way, the whole bathroom area seemed very small indeed. We slept ok but not great but it is downtown so there's always traffic noise in the background. The hotel itself is pretty well situated and close to lots of good places. We spent all Saturday morning in a pub that's literally around the corner called Fado's who show all the premier league football from the UK so that was perfect for us. We decided to eat in at the pizzeria on Sat evening and the food was good enough. The barman there was lovely and very friendly and looked after us well so top marks to him.
The wifi in the property is pretty awful to be fair and very slow. The worst wifi we encountered in 4 different properties we stayed in over the week we were away and that does detract from the experience especially when the TV wasn't particularly good either in terms of channel choices etc and the remote was a bit dodgy in terms of the controller being difficult to respond and the channel selection so using your own devices to be able to stream things is quite important. I would also say that the property strikes me as a little tired and probably in need of a complete renovation/remodelling. The carpets seem tired and the paintwork is rather drab in the property, I' wasn't a fan of the colour of paint they use but we all like different things and that's just my point of view.
