Hotel Bristol is a beautiful hotel in a fabulous location. My room was a classic room and was perfect for my stay on a business trip. The bathroom was very spacious and the amenities including bottled water, fruit, and a chocolate on the pillow were much appreciated and were restocked each day. The Internet worked well and I found the staff very helpful for directions, recommendations, and mailing letters.
I have only two things of note for other potential travelers to this hotel. First, my classic room had one window that looked into a small concrete courtyard. Because the view was essentially into other rooms, I did not keep my curtains open. For me, this was fine because I was in meetings offsite most of the day, however, if you are expecting a nice view on your vacation, I suggest you make sure you know what room you are booking and pay extra for the view if that is important to you. Second, during my stay (early October 2012) there was construction noise from lower floors (as has been mentioned in other reviews) and it started relatively early (between 7 and 8am). Because I was already getting ready for meetings, this was not a problem for me and it appears from management responses to other reviews that the construction has since ceased, however, it may be something to ask about before you book if you desire to sleep in.
