Good, clean hotel, located in a mall, or if the mall is a part of the hotel, a bit hard to tell really. The staff is top-notch and very helpful. The lobby is a bit cramped last I was there with too few sitting places for those after-conference talks.
The conference part of the hotel is in a different part of the building a bit off - you have to walk through the mall to get there. Free soft ice-cream, snacks and coffee is provided for free between conference sessions. The wifi is free with a voucher at check-in. Wifi-speed is adequate if a bit complicated to login. The conference rooms range from really big to smallish.
The rooms are standard-sized with bed, wardrobe, small writing shelf and bathroom with toilet and shower. View is, if you're on the right side and floor, spectacular.
Nights tend to be cold. No matter which way I twiddle the room-temperature controll I'm always cold, or if not cold, woken by the fan vent-noise. I usually end up setting the temperature to max, turning of the fans and using ear-plugs. This kinda' works. The rooms are otherwise pretty good insulated for noise from the corridors and neighbouring rooms. I appreciate that, as I have diffiulties sleeping in other places.
The breakfast buffé rocks, with plenty of things to sample. The lunch and dinners are so-so.
The bar is okay as well. Am a little bit miffed I can't order a lactose-free irish coffee (cream-wise that is). As far as I can tell the bar and kitchen share the back-rooms, so why isn't the bar personnel able to offer lactose-free drinks, when the kitchen can offer lactose free butter, milk etc at breakfast? Weird.
Parking space is plenty, but you have to drive round to the back of the hotel. No biggie, but still.
There is a large Ica Maxi superdupermegastoremarket just off of the lobby, for those last-minute snack-urges. There is also a petrol station in the building. The mall is quite big with pharmacy, pet and shoe-store etc.
