    The hotel room was starting to get shabby and in much need of revamping.

    Very good location, service was excellent and the rooms clean and a good size. Curtain in the shower is a little outdated and will mean a wet bathroom floor and the parking at $29 per night (valet and self parking) is exorbitant for Newcastle considering the car is not under cover

    The room was freezing and the AC did not appear to be working. It was an uncomfortable evening in the cold.
