Person at check was not very helpful - more interested in getting a dinner reservation sorted instead of helping with check in & our bags. Very limited parking space - told to park on the street. Room (6) was opposite the rest rooms and in a noisy corridor, no view, very basic. For what considers itself an up market establishment it did not live up to expectations.

Atmosphere and Dining
We had a late check in for a short overnight stay before our flight back to Asia. Staff very friendly and attentive. Dinner was good but breakfast was better-more options to chose from. Only disappointment was the noise outside the room from the kitchen and restaurant until 11pm at night.
