We stayed here for two nights over New Year's Eve. The hotel is beautiful and the the location is perfect. We had a balcony room (although our balcony chairs were lacking the cushions that all the others had) with a view down to the river which was special but I wouldn't pay for again. The bathroom is definitely the best feature of the room - huge, with a sunken jet tub, expansive shower and separate WC room (when we arrived there was a dirty bathmat on the floor but it was exchanged during the turndown service a few hours later without our drawing it to anyone's attention). The room itself was not particularly large. It was decorated very tastefully in neutral decor with impressively high ceilings.
The public spaces of the hotel are pretty but no one working in the hotel made any particular effort to be especially friendly or outgoing. The one exception was in the restaurant where the staff were extremely friendly and accommodating.
The breakfast included in our package was exceptional - just delicious, plentiful and made to order, whatever you wanted. Spectacular decor.
We looked at the rooftop pool and the spa (expensive) but didn't have the opportunity to use either.
I'm happy we stayed here for what it was but given the price and the lack of warmth and welcome (especially at the holidays) I wouldn't stay here again. However, if you're looking for somewhere exceptionally clean and reliable, this is a good place.
