Impressive structure, admirable facilities, excellent service, comfortable rooms. If only the air-conditioning had worked. The weather was quite warm and muggy; we really needed the a/c, but it produced only noise (a lot of noise), but no air flow, much less cool air flow. It was too late and we were tired to address the problem that night, but next morning we reported it to the desk, asked that the a/c be fixed or our room changed. When we returned that evening, neither had happened, but again it was too late and we were too tired to move to another hotel). The following morning we again reported the problem, were told that repairing the hotel's a/c systems was a work in progress. When we returned that evening the a/c still emitted only noise. Fortunately, the weather then cooled a bit, and sleeping became merely uncomfortable rather than miserable, as it had been that first night, when, whenever we'd managed to get to sleep, we'd be periodically awakened by rivulets of sweat trickling down our bodies onto the soaked sheet beneath us. Not much use in a hotel’s having a luxurious environment, if it fails in its prime purpose - providing a good night’s sleep.
