        • Beautiful view of the city and small hotel. Perfectly adequate facilities for reasonable price and nice staff. The room was clean, the food was good.

          Noisy location and the wifi service didn't work on my floor, I had to go to the lobby downstairs to connect. The bathroom sink drained very slowly.

        • The location was excellent, hotel staff were nice and the Hotwire price was ideal. The service was unbelievably fast, room was clean and the breakfast in the restaurant was very good for $10.

          This place was filthy dirty and shower was horribly water restricted. The elevator was slow, the manager did not offer to adjust the false advertising in any manner.

          The city is very, very noisy and street outside is very busy. Room is small and old.

        • The location is excellent and and Union square shopping is in easy walking distance. The pickwick hotel has a romantic style, price is good and the rooms are modern and comfortable, a contrast from the lobby and hallways. The staff are nice & helpful and the menu items are priced reasonably and I ordered was tasty.

          Its the city need i say more and difficult to shut the windows to avoid the noise from the street during the night. The bathroom is pretty small, facilities are tired.

        • Literally steps away from the westfield shoppig centre, pleasant stay and the staff were very friendly,courteous and helpful. The rooms were very clean.

          The value of staying here is the location and relative low cost, hotel photos are completely misleading. The tv's are old as well, the one i had ended up not working.

        • The location was great and for being a older hotel I found the room very clean. The staff were very friendly, the beds were quite comfotable and had nice sheets.

          That place was a disaster and wasn't good, the bathroom was tiny as was the wardrobe, the breakfast cafe one door south was awful.
