The room was wonderful and comfortable. Staff was very friendly and helpful with paying for a taxi that didn't take credit cards. The hotel is right on pub row so if you are a pub crawler, it is really convenient when it is time to crawl back to your hotel. With that being said, it is on pub row, so it can get loud. The hotel is also currently being remodeled. That didn't effect my stay but if you are sensitive to paint fumes, it maybe an issue.

Great location. Friendly and helpful staff. My only dislike was the shower. I was with my 74 year old mother and the tub/shower was extremely high and very narrow. Once you managed to climb in, you were showering with the shower curtain in your face
