Loved everything about the staff and hotel, the restaurants were amazing and especially the sauna/steam room/pool. One thing to note is the size of the rooms - make sure you are aware of which size you book because ours was very tiny!

Very loud hotel. Our room overlooked some sort of party courtyard. Was loud there until about 2am. Then it was loud in the halls as people returned to their rooms. Housekeeping got started about 7:30 each morning and they were loud too. If you value your sleep then try somewhere else.

We actually enjoyed our stay here until I noticed an extra charge on my credit card from this hotel a few weeks after our stay. The hotel didn’t send me a bill until I reached out to Expedia, and then in their bill they claimed we took things from the minibar, including wine, which we don’t drink. We brought our own food and didn’t take any of their ridiculous, overpriced minibar garbage. They’re a bunch of scammers and I don’t recommend staying here. Maybe if you take pictures of everything before and after you leave then it might be okay. Their gym also seemed to be closed every time we checked. 0 stars.

The public areas are great, while the rooms are small and just "adequate". The record players, while it looked good as a design feature, are quite unnecessary in such a small dark space with limited flat surfaces.

Style over substance.
We checked in quickly as we were in a rush for a dinner reservation and it was seamless - just dropping off our bags after getting the keys. The hotel is stylish and typical of the Dean and other press-up group locations. When we got up to our room later that evening, we noticed the room was cold and that the window was open. After trying to close the window, we noticed it was broken. In addition to being cold, people were shouting outside and it was quite loud. Shortly after that, the night porter came to inspect and confirmed it was broken. We eventually moved to a new room on a different floor - but it was 40 minutes later. The new room was fine, but in the morning there was light bursting through the sides of the blinds and people talking loudly outside our room at 8 am. When checking out nobody asked how our stay was or apologised for the inconvenience of having to move rooms in the middle of the night (I did explain the situation but it was ignored). Overall, would not rush back to stay here.
