I stayed at this hotel for six nights. I had booked through booking.com at the back of a disappointment in a Indianapolis hotel. This one however proved to be quite a cool choice. The check in staff was kind enough to allow us early check in as rooms got ready as our flight had landed at 6 am and we...

I spend four nights there recently. It is a decent place, in the heart of the city with minimum facilities. The place is a bit old, but, okay. Good value for the money. There are a plenty of restaurants around and the hotel has its own restaurant as well. So, I would recommend for a short stay.

Stayed for four nights as part of a business trip with a group of seven others. The rooms are compact but very clean and have all of the normal amenities you would expect from a hotel room. The ensuite was spotlessly clean and serviced everyday with fresh towels. We also had chocolates left on the bed, a nice touch. Breakfast...
