    5/5 Excellent

    Good value. Tired decor in rooms but they’re clean, large, and everything you need in its place (plenty of other rooms have charge points a million miles from the beds but they had sockets in the bedside lamps which is a massive plus for me!) Was surprised that my room included a large bed with an adjoining room featuring 2 additional double beds, so I turned down the daily clean for the environment and simply changed beds for the 3 nights there. Good location. They were filming “The Trial of the Chicago Seven” during my stay which added extra frisson (actors buzzing around)

    Parking situation is a mess.

    How and why they run their valet parking with so few people is a mystery. Getting your car in or out is a nightmare, there are crowds of people waiting for Ubers or whatever and no one knows what is going on. No signs, no instructions. There is a wait even at 5 am from lack of employees. Plus it's $48/day to park! Location is great so take public transit. Our stay was okay otherwise.
