6/10 Good

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.

Nice hotel with difficult check-in and parking
Rooms are clean and retro-modern, high ceilings at least on 1st floor, although a bit small. Nice bathrooms. Good restaurants but told gratuity charged to room does not go to the servers so pay by credit card or give a cash gratuity. Coffee/espresso from lobby coffee shop was poor despite expensive machine. To check-in when arriving by car, must park illegally on city street (no legal spots available when we arrived and hotel does not have a single parking space for check-in) and there is no car valet or help with bags to offset this problem. Parking is at a public garage 5 minutes away down a hill and no in/out privileges so not convenient if you have a car.

Generally nice. Few issues.
Pros. Very good location. Incredibly friendly staff. Both restaurants were excellent. Very inviting lobby. Rooms clean and a nice shower. Cons. Leisure facilities and pool not yet open. Hotel was originally advertised with a pool. When I messaged the hotel I was told facilities would be open end of August. They are no where near complete. Rooms are very small. There is no storage in the room. It rained heavily when we were out, so shoes, socks etc were all very wet, there is no draws, cupboards to put anything in. Rooms are nice, but very small with limited stuff you need and a fair bit of stuff you don’t need. Overall a nice, very well staffed hotel with great options for food in a nice location. Just a few small issuers with the room.

Hotel is not made for more than a night or two. Swimming pool not finished yet. Gorgeous restaurant but slow service. Not all staff up to speed yet. Very clean.

Pleasant stay
Staff is very casual & friendly. Nicely decorated; rooms are very retro. Our room was very small but adequate. The shower was huge. Location is great. The restaurant on the rooftop is very nice. We ate breakfast up there. It looks like the pool will be nice once it’s done.
