Even though renovations are still underway (see the website for updates), this hotel is wonderful in every respect. Staff, rooms, bar, Concierge services are all what you'd expect and more from a top notch and famous hotel. The Christmas decorations were magical and the whole atmosphere quite lovely. We are greeted and treated like old friends - and nothing was too much trouble. The bar is a very pleasant space to sit and relax - and the cocktails are innovative and delightful. Breakfast in the bar is great too - some unusual selections available indeed. Rooms large and luxurious, even if you haven't chosen a suite.
