“Fabulous Views”

Laura S - via Tripadvisor

The price was reasonable for a corner suite with views of the river and South Bank. There was a great kitchen space and large tv plus dvd player. We could walk to South Bank and everywhere we needed to go. Left the car in the parking garage the whole time. I was pleasantly surprised.
