Poor 2.0
It was a very bad experience.
Cooling function of the room AC didn’t work, it was very hot in my room. Visa card wasn’t acceptable at the restaurant, wanted to use cash to pay my beer but waiting cane back said no chance available. How disappointing.

Business Hotel Close to Airport
My stay overall was very good the service from your staff was excellent, and the food service was good. Only observation I have after staying on more than one occasion is some rooms are better than others in the same category (some look fresh and appear refurbished while other are some what tired looking etc). Hence rooms are not consistent.
Thomas, th1 night business trip
Poor 2.0
AVOID at 4* price. While this hotel "looks" like a 4-star on paper, in reality it is already badly dilapidated, with peeling wallpaper, broken furniture, warped and otherwise damages floors, poor restaurant. For the price stay at the much nicer Shoregate (still with some problems). Do not think you are finding a comparable to the Marriott or Radisson 4*s. At a 2*+/3* price this would be fine.

Not so great
I was not very impressed by overall experience. It is not worth the price of the room I stayed in. The conditions were a bit disappointing
