Business / conference

Liked: How close it was to everything. To get to anywhere was just a short walk.

Disliked: We had a twin share room however the size of the room was more of a single with two beds, a desk and a chair in it. There was no wardrobe or drawers so we had to live out of our suitcase meaning that both of us could not get dressed at the same time as there was no room left.
