Felt like it was in soft opening mode
The hotel room was spacious and clean, but it did feel like the hotel was in soft opening mode. This is weird considering the hotel has already been existing for a while as Oxford Hotel. Now it is renamed as Royce Hotel.
The rooms had a safety deposit box, a ref, facilities to boil hot water, and 2 coffee and 2 tea bags. We liked how the room was large and clean.
Wifi worked only in the lobby area, we were unable to connect to the hotel wifi while in the rooms even if the signal appeared strong. The wifi in the lobby area was named "oxford", while the wifi in the hotel room area was named "royce".
There were only 2 channels on the TV. Breakfast area was very small, considering the number of rooms in the hotel. Thus people were waiting in line to be seated. Servers were overwhelmed. I did not receive the coffee I was asking for. Food choices were ok but not wide ranging - on a Sunday morning, there was one soup, rice (plain and garlic), corned beef, chicken nuggets, chop suey. Fruits were some watermelon and sweet banana, not much else there.
Check out and check in took some time as well. There was a long queue when we were checking in, the people at the reception seemed to be confused with all of the different papers that they had in front of them. We handed over our voucher, after a few minutes, they couldn't find the printed voucher we handed over. Good thing they did find it after a few more minutes, but still, that's not really a good experience.
Parking was good, there is a big lot in front with parking available, and another lot on the side should the parking be full.
Location wise, you do need a car to get around. There are some restaurants and a convenience store a few blocks away. There is no swimming pool.
