I have stayed for years at this hotel and must say that it has gone down with each change in management. When I started I believe a Pole was in charge and the hotel was outstanding, truly 5*s plus! At Christmas season the lobby was beautifully decorated and glorious Polish Christmas carols played throughout the lobby. Truly a festive spirit. Then, someone else came and that ended. Now, it looks like the grinch stole Christmas and certainly hijacked the music scene. Some people mention the hotel decor, I think that it is elegant and truly fits the hotel architecture but must say it is time to redecorate. My room was lovely but for instance, the back of the curtains were actually shredding due to age and elements and the bottom of the door frames were all in need of repainting. If the hotel is content to be labeled a 4* hotel they earn it truly, but if they want to be known as 5* they have a long way to go. To start, the toiletries are very basic and now (not last year) but now, you no longer get 2 bottles of free water in the bathroom!!! Even the most basic of Polish hotels supply you with water. I couldnt believe it, what would it cost, $1 a day when buying in bulk? What they save on Christmas decorations they could buy water! Also, the scrambled eggs w/ butter in the buffet were the best in the world. Now, they are dry and hard. I was told corporate wants uniformity. Bring back the manager you had about 8 years ago and return to your 5* status. One thing I will not fault is the staff, they are extremely helpful and sympathetic, kudos to the concierge staff in particular. Will I return, perhaps, location is second to none, but it is sad to see corporate be content with a premier property lose its standing. Yet I must amend the will I return, yes, but only if I get a great rate from the discounter websites because the hotel site is too expensive for what you get.
