I stayed here in March 2014 for my sister's wedding (I was matron of honor). The room I was given had a terrible view overlooking an industrial looking rooftop. It is prob a nice view in the summer since I think it's a rooftop garden in season. My bigger problem was that when I entered my room, it was obvious someone had been in there. The bed was made but you could tell someone had sat at the top/leaned on the pillow. A couple things from the minibar were out and opened on a table. A soap had been used. The hotel was mortified but I had to go to my sister the bride's room to change since we had the rehearsal dinner and they needed to re-service the room, so I couldn't even get ready in my own room. The hotel's excuse? "someone must've checked out and then used their key again." Why wouldn't the key be de-activated upon check-out???? That's an incredible safety breach.
Other than that, the room itself was nice. The wedding, at the hotel, was beautiful. But not the Ritz service I know.
