“Beautiful Hotel”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 5, 2011

Beautiful rooms. Restaurant is very crowded but the food is good. Did not appreciate being charged $9 for a glass of water though.

“Good quality produce in smart environment”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 4, 2011

I arrived here on a Sunday night when many places were shut. I asked if they could feed me and after checking a minute or two they agreed.

The restaurant is quite smart with a fairly sophisticated ambience. The fare was good quality meat and fish simply but expertly cooked. Scallops were precisely done and delicious. My steak was tender, cooked to order and flavoursome.

There is a good wine list with a decent selection by the glass.

Service was professional and attentive.

Prices are above average but justified.
