My daughter and I spent 4 nights at this hotel in June. We liked everything about the hotel. The staff was very friendly and helpful. The front desk people spoke English, which is good because we didn't speak any Spanish. The breakfast buffet was free and had everything you could think of, including made to order omelets and breakfast sandwiches.... More

Room is large, so is the bed (very comfortable), everything works, all the usual amenities incl. bathrobes, body lotion and some free soft drinks and beers in the mini bar. Cosmetics are nice...

Stayed one night in this ultra over the top art hotel in the financial district. Very reasonable price when combined w airfare. Super breakfast included, with healthy and much varied menu. I have never seen such a generous buffet! Beautiful pool and clean, later room for us w separate,are twin beds. Very nice after a week on the jungle!

The hotel is right in business center, close to banks an shopping. Rooms are comfortable. Good room service. The hotel has several restaurant options. The cafeteria in the lobby is very handy. The breakfast is good: both international and local food choices.

I love this hotel. We were so happy with everythings. Beds so comfortable and room amazing. We were on 30th floor. The best view ever. Food is delicious and very reasonably priced. Close to many shops and restaurants. Easy access to absolutely everything in the city. Lobby stunning.
