What to say about this place? This was my second trip here. Stayed for 1 night with another couple and 3 kids. The adults were planning on going up to Drai's for a couple hours while the kids watched a movie but it was closed so we sat in the Library Bar and had a few drinks. The staff and setting are very nice. The prices of drinks-not so nice.
The bellman and valet were pleasant. Always with a friendly greeting when we encountered them. The price to park your car over night is outrageous $38. I parked across the street for $20. The only drawback with that is that there are no ins and outs. The front desk personnel were a little cold. A couple of times they weren't at the desk so I had to wait for someone to show up. The card keys they had for me didn't work for the elevator and I had to go back 3 times to exchange them. The 3rd time the front desk guy asked if I had the card key in my wallet. Next to other credit cards. Really? 3x's and suddenly it's my fault. He had no better luck getting them to work so a bellman took me up to my room and the card keys didn't work there either.
The rooms are wonderful. Nice ambient sounds provided by some special device. Beds were comfortable and bathroom was clean and well stocked. The gym was also spacious and well equipped. One of the best hotel gyms I have ever been to.
Walking outside can be an adventure. Ate at a pizza parlor nearby with a prostitute and weirdo inside.
Overall I would stay here again. The hotel is posh and hip. But I wouldn't stay much longer then 2 nights though.
