"This hotel is centered on a delightful courtyard with pool so if you book here, you must get a courtyard view (odd numbered rooms). If you don't ask, you will most likely get a room overlooking the carpark and busy roads ajoining the QEW.... not so good! If you are disabled request a 1st floor room as there is no elevator."
