We reserved a suite that sleeps 8 people. 2 bedrooms and 2 bathrooms. That was perfect. Sofa bed sleeps 2 but needs extra padding. The room was ok but not especially clean. Floor and furniture was dusty. Our offer had breakfast included but we were not informed that breakfast consisted of one muffin and a drink (grab and go bag). We understand that Covid has changed norms and methods for all hotels, just wish we were informed beforehand. Great location though with tins of dining options within walking distance. Won’t mind staying there again and give it another try. Hotel staff was very friendly and helpful.

I liked the cleanliness and the fact that it was closed to everything... shops , restaurants. The only reason that I did not liked was that the pool it’s open until 10 pm and there s a lot of people making a lot of noise... Good luck to sleep ! No housekeeping!

Place was old and worn down, water pressure was terrible, had to go and get our own sheets at the front desk instead of bringing them to us. Spend the money somewhere else you can get a nicer room for the same cost.

We do apologize if your stay was not what you had anticipated. We hope in the future things will get back to a more normal level- but until that time we need to follow our stay safe with Sonesta and CDC guidelines to minimize guest and employee contact. Thank you
