Stayed this weekend for 4 days, 9th to 13th May 2013. Beautiful imposing building. Very welcoming reception staff who allocated a high floor room with a balcony as requested, room 610 on the top floor. Room was extremely spacious, bed was lovely, view great. Overall a very impressive room. Its only when you nit pick that you notice the bathroom mirror was very old and marked very badly on the back and the curtains although very luxurious, they were dirty.
Had room service one night and it was prompt and very reasonable price wise, food was pretty good too.
On the hole a very good hotel, and we would stay again due to the age of the building and ambiance of the place, hate all the glass and chrome places that most cities are full of.
