My husband and I enjoyed the penthouse suite we stayed in but our visit was let down by the lack of service on arrival. Our booking included valet parking so we were amazed when after checking in reception made no enquiries of our car and we had to ask for our car to be parked, and this was attended to like were asking a huge favour. We were also left to struggle with five large suitcases and bags on our own until one of us worked up the courage to ask for porter service. This was provided by the front desk attendant but we were surpsrised that this sort of assistance was not offered to guests as a general matter of courtesy. Front desk staff lack warmth and seem only interested in getting a copy of your credit card.
Room itself was modern and stylish with plenty of the everyday conveniences you would expect. The washing machine however did not work and the instructions / diagram provided did not make sense. I had to call room service and hand over a bundle of my underwear for laundering which they did at no cost. They admitted the washing machine had not worked for other guests in the past but instead of fixing it I think they just hope that few guests use the laundry facilities.
Food ok for the price, internet access via public computer a little steep.
