We were more than pleasantly surprised by just how good this hotel was.
The reception staff were friendly and very helpful (we ended up with both an early check-in and late check-out). The general decor is very impressive, though perhaps a little gloomy. The rooms (we were in 423) are a good size, comfortable, squeaky clean - the bathroom is more than adequate and stunningly finished in green marble.
A couple of "niggles" though - at times there seemed to be a lot of people all wanting attention at reception (more staff needed there perhaps?) and I'm not sure what was the point of employing porters. They ignored my wife and I as we struggled with our bags; subsequently I noted it wasn't just us and they simply stood around not helping anyone!
I would certainly stay here again.
