It was in walking distance to everything! After a day of walking and sight-seeing, a nice shower is everything...but the water pressure in this hotel was horrible. I ended up having to wash and rinse my hair under the spicket.

We were charged twice, once by Travelocity and then by the hotel. Several weeks on and Travelocity has not resolved the double charge. The property is a bit difficult to get in to, the hotel entrance is a very nondescript door on Ormonde Street - virtually invisible at night. Our "penthouse suite" was strange - on 3 levels and beware, the electrical outlets in the bedroom, the lowest level, are continental style. since I only had the flat bladed UK/Ireland adapters I had to do a night without my CPAP machine. Can't beat the location, though. Overall the stay was OK.
