I know quite well this hotel because I have been there several times during my 4 years Trinidad business. In order to get to the Hotel, you need to climb, climb and climb. This means that whether you invite your business counterparts to come to the Hotel, or you need to rent a car, or take a cab for at least 20 minutes of car, more 30 minutes - 1 hour if you face the Port of Spain Morning or End of afternoon evening traffics.
The level zero of the hotel is level 4, meaning that if you have a room starting by 1,2 or 3, you have to go down with the elevator, like going to the cave...not so exciting. They have " executive rooms", allowing to go to an executive breakfast, to me it is just an extra charged to get a private orange juice! forget it. However ask indeed for a new renovated room if you don't like the old colonial type of hairdryer and bathroom and curtains and everything dated from the 70's. Having said that It is quite Ok in this type of former UK colony, where some British influence is still around.
With regards to the price, it is really expensive, more than 280 USD a room, and mini suite are above 300 usd. That is unfortunately classic in the Caribbean to pay this amount for a reasonable business hotel, but it really does not worth it, as, for instance, the vieille tour in Guadeloupe (270 euros for a so called 4 stars hotel...).
The service is quite good, reception sometimes not very clear with the extras (one for being a foreigner, one for the local tax, one for...and obviously the only one proposed to take off is the 1 USD/ day for the childrens that nobody will take off), but it is a bit part of the game.
High speed internet is in each room through an ethernet cable and a modem.
Voila, I'd recommend it however but i'd rather find a more downtown hotel if you need to do a lot of meetings in POS.
