What an overpriced disaster. Save your money and book elsewhere. Our 'suite' was cramped, drab, and needed a total overhaul (the wall-to-wall carpets were starting to peel up, there were scuff marks all over over room's walls and baseboards, the toilet worked half the time, etc.). The hotel staff, particularly the concierge Marek, were not helpful. They couldn't get us a suitable dinner reservation, they told us our rental car agency was closed on the weekend (I called and it was not), and they gave us wrong directions. The prices are very high at this property, but do not be fooled - this is nowhere near a 5 star hotel. I would never stay here again.
