Not a great experience at all. Had to ask three times for the staff to fix the tv and assemble the sofa bed. Room was cleaned at different times of the day? Staff were indifferent at best. Food/water in lobby was very expensive. Breakfast was great.

We booked an executive twin room (two relatives traveling together) and were pleasantly surprised at almost every turn. We aren't business travelers but wanted access to the views and free drinks. Our room was huge with a floor-to-ceiling window overlooking the city skyline. The beds are exceedingly comfortable with huge, fluffy pillows. I don't love the lilac decorations, but so... More

The hotel itself is lovely, there is a large lobby with a cocktail bar, reception staff... More
