The Bad
There were a few common concerns found for this hotel, among the reviews sourced for this analysis.

The in-room decor and furnishings were getting a little tired according to some guests.

Although many guests were thankful to have a free breakfast each morning, a few guests wished it had more protein choices. Some found the breakfast room small, cramped and rather chaotic.

A few guests were disappointed to not be able to use the free shuttle services as it was already booked, or did not run early enough in the morning to satisfy their need.

Some guests said they could hear sirens of ambulances going to the hospital even on the higher floors.
