The Bad
While the majority of reviews consulted for this analysis were positive, there were a few common complaints about the parking and noise transfer. 

The hotel's parking was a source of complaint for a few reviewers, who described it as limited and challenging. One patron noted, "Parking was a hassle - half of the time the parking under the hotel was full and therefore inaccessible meaning you had to back up to the road to go find another parking spot". However, other reviewers have said that the parking underground is ample.

A few lodgers complained of noise disturbances during their stay. They reported street noise and noisy in-room air conditioning.
