I enjoyed the friendly and polite demeanor of the staff especially Monica. She was wonderfully friendly and very professional. Cynthia (restaurant) was also very warm and prompt.

I stayed here for three months and my experience was amazing and my days were very charming. Chambers Lounge, has been crafted superbly, where you get to listen to the classicals and jazz muziq, without forgeting the awesome rhumba fusions. am looking forward to be back soon with my family, keep it really up!
