I chose this hotel because of its reputation. It is a Belle Époque beauty. The public areas and rooms are beautiful. It was a treat to stay here. There is a nice indoor pool for lap swimming. The breakfast has great food with good variety. However a grand hotel with grand price tag should have grand service which it does not. Staff are rigid and indifferent. All requests out of the ordinary are rejected. Check in is slow. I asked to use the pool early one morning and was told it was not possible. I was able to do this even at the Hilton Orlando. I am now in Milan at the Principe Savoia and the service is far superior. Also now I have a/c. At this hotel the rooms were hot since there was no ventilation. We had to sleep with the windows open and were awakened by the birds at 5. If it was not so pricey you might overlook these things but they do charge.
