Some may think that the building is dated, but I actually like the Victorian-inspired facade. The location is perfectly situated near a train station. Other modes of transportation are also very accessible. Some tourist attractions such as museums, the Esplanade Park, a beach, and a few restaurants are just a few kilometers away. The staff will go the extra mile to be of assistance in any way possible. They are friendly and very efficient. Housekeeping staff was very professional and did an excellent job. Rooms were comfortable and very clean. Complimentary breakfast was good and I enjoyed the variety. I highly recommend this hotel because the quality of service is incomparable. I’m glad I chose the Esplanade Hotel. They should have at least complimentary parking spaces for guest staying in the hotel. Both street parking and valet parking are costly.
