I agree with all the positive reviews of this hotel with one exception: lack of hot water. At a hotel of this caliber, there should be hot water in the shower. We stayed in a standard room and are not finicky travelers. Did not expect powerful water flow, but the hot water was either non-existent or just trickled out of the showerhead with a one-time exception when all of a sudden it came on, albeit lukewarm at best.
Otherwise, the hotel is superb.
