Excellent Hotel
Shower head was old and it could not be adjusted. It’s come loose from the wall where guests have tried to adjust the angle. Room 701. Ironing board is barely usable. Very small. But, not a huge deal. I got my clothes ironed. Just a little tricky. Hotel otherwise is excellent and the staff are phenomenal.
