In a world of bland luxury hotels, let's start with the good news: this place has style. The rooms are not huge, but they have a a classic charm that seems to run back and forth between 1930s and 60s--stylish furniture, elegant bathroom fixings. Somewhat dark color palette (especially in hallways and lobby), but attractive and engaging. Don Draper would stay here.
Then again, Don Draper would stay here. The service was nice, but a little TOO cool, and especially with the same entrance and elevator going to both hotel and rooftop bar, sometimes it felt a little too cool for mere mortals.
Breakfast in downstairs restaurant was good, but service was on and off -- one day blah, next day outstanding. At this price we could expect consistency.
But all said, a cool place that we thoroughly enjoyed. Next time, I'll bring a tie.
