I have traveled a lot and stayed in some of the best hotels in the US, Japan, Hong Kong and France, among others. This was one of the best hotels I have ever stayed in. The location was great - downtown right in the middle of everything. The service was fantastic - from the front desk to the concierge to... More

This is the third time I've stayed here and it would take something extraordinary to make me go somewhere else. Beautifully decorated and in a prime location (lovely views of the river and the charming buildings opposite), the hotel has a wonderful feel--luxurious but relaxed. The staff is unfailingly polite and helpful. The breakfast features a wide selection of good,... More

This is a wonderful five star Hotel right on the River and one of our favorite stops for a drink when walking along the River. We got the chance to stay here once in the late summer and we had a street side room. I don't think they had air conditioning .....so we opened the window. I had to listen... More

Room size is big, my advice is do not bother to book the lake view since its much much more expensive but the room was so much smaller than any cheaper room. And the view wasn't really exactly overlooking the lake, but looking beside the lake. The concierge guy was absolutely helpful. The pick up was a bit messy, when... More

This is situated on the banks of the river, right in the middle of the old city I have visited this bar several times, on each occasion the service has been excellent.
