A really great hotel, excellent facilities, modern and very clean. Unfortunately when we checked in the computer server was down so a delay was expected. However, this delay took 2.5 hours to check in. I had an event to get ready for and was unable to because of the delay. Check in was very unorganized and those that had been waiting first were not told check in was ready. Could have been handled a lot differently. Still, I would stay again just a shame that this check in process happened which affected other plans.
