As soon as you see the stairway spiraling above the reception desk you get a feel for the old style elegance of this hotel. My room was well appointed with a lovely deep bathtub. The breakfast buffet is ample and the room quite pretty. There are cozy sitting areas on many of the floors.The little restaurant bar is very homey and has good food. If you like to walk it has a perfect location to explore all the downtown shopping , the heritage houses , the museums, the maze of tiny streets, and the port area.
