We also had a couple of the suites, which were again huge, and very comfortable. We enjoyed the food mostly, although I... More

Fantastic location, brilliant food and awesome people. We were in room 1705 which was well located. However the most impressive thing about this hotel is the mangement team, led by Nicholas. His philosophy of visibility and inclusion by his staff (and himself in particular) was truely exceptional. Always asking guests if everything was OK and being prepared to roll up... More
