The hotel is new, clean, and fresh looking. Beds are comfortable, and the breakfast is OK. The two drawbacks? The first is that you have to pay for internet, which is annoying. The second is that to turn the power on in the room, you have to place your key card in the slot by the door. What this means is that if you leave your laptop in your room to charge while you are going out for a meal, the battery could well be flat by the time you return. Smarter hotels have the key card slot control the lights, the air conditioning (if any), and even the TV but not the other power outlets. So, if you want to re-charge electronic devices while you are out of the room, stick an old credit card in the slot.
