Stayed here for 5 nights with my wife and 3 year old son. We didn't use the club/lounges and restaurants as they are not geared towards toddlers. The hotel wants to be chic but actually isn't. Let me explain: the valet parking is not organised well. The system they use on the ground doesn't work. Especially on Fridays when apparently all that believe they are something more than others because of the size of their wallet show up and cars back up around the corner. Other days fine, however they lost both my car and keys because they mixed it up with a condo residents car, color of paper as they explained. Plus: the valet company did refund the valet. Lobby is nice, spacious and modern, like a condo building should have. In the morning coffee table, in the vening wine, both for free, but nowhere to actually stan or sit, besides a few chairs to the side. Rooms was modern, carpet on the floor, good bathroom with seperate shower and tub,mand two sinks. King room, water view. Never take the city view ones, bad views more noice. The materials used in the room try to be chic, but are not. The wood is all of the pressed kind and already shows significant wear and tear. Apparently the people staying here are not that chic... Balcony is nice, and good size. Pool area is good, but whem you look close, a lot of small tiles in both pools already came los and a maintenance excercise would be a proper suggestion. One day the crew forgot to turn on the pool heater, took a day to get warm again. Be aware that your room is not city view opposite the door to the ice room. That is so small people will keep the door open and you will be woken every time it is being used. All in all a good place to stay but not for the rates they charge. I had the corporate rate for my company, which made it ok. But you can get a cheaper room, less nice too, in e.g. The Conrad and have a great breakfast buffet. Would I go back? Not sure, but it would be an option.
