I've traveled for business for over 30 years and can honestly say I was blown away by this hotel. The room was spacious, clean, very sound proof. The bath ammenities were superb. Loved the in-room computer.
After a long day a work, it was a delight to sit out on the balcony and see boats coming down the canal. It was also lovely to dream a bit -- seeing the large yachts that were docked by the hotel each day!
The front desk and valet were outstanding! Room service was good too. The only minor complaint was that there was not much of a selection for late night in-room dining. No biggie, but even though I was tired, I opted to eat elsewhere.
