The Museum Hotel is my favourite place to stay in the world, and I have stayed at some fancy hotels (eg Intercontinental Park Lane, Grand Hyatt Hong Kong).
The feel of the place is amazing. There are beautiful art pieces to be found around every corner and if you ask for the book at the front desk, you can enjoy the experience of learning about each piece as you walk through the various areas.
You will see everything from Italian super-bikes to skulls made up of "hundreds and thousands" and mounted in clear block.
If you are looking for a standard luxury hotel, Museum will do fine; especially the new residential wing that is very well appointed. If you are looking for something unique, there is nothing like the Museum Hotel.
I stay often for business and cringe when the travel agent says she has to put me in one of those boring hotels across town.
Some people talk about poor experiences that they had here. I challenge you to show me a business involving people where that doesn't happen.
Will the staff occasionally have a poor day? Sure, so does everyone.
Is every room perfect ever time? No, but have you looked around your house lately?
Does the entire package of ambiance, art, nice rooms and location to restaurants make it great? You Bet!
