We were booked to stay at the Meridien (ranked #4 on trip advisor!), however, they phoned to say they were over-booked, and asked if we would stay at the imperial instead.
It is a beautiful hotel, in a Fairmount hotel kind of way, i.e. super luxurious and fussy and ornate. If you like that, then you will love this place!
I found the lady at the front desk very pleasant and helpful, but I found a lot of the other staff rather on the snooty side, particularly the doormen. They seem to cater to the prada wearing, audi driving moneyed crowd, and if you don't fit that mold, you may not feel comfortable here.
I'm glad I had the chance to stay here just to experience it, but honestly, I prefer the Meridien - more my style of decor, and waaaay better beds and showers! In the end, it's just not worth the extra money you pay to stay here.
