        • The location was great and the hotel was pretty nice for the price I've paid for. On the first impression the reception area/lobby was well presented and service was top notch and the concierge was more than helpful. The room was very quiet.

          At least on the city street you get the wind to blow away the awful smell and the bathroom is a bit old looking and rather small.
