Check in was stress free, our booking had been made over the internet weeks before and the price was great. On arrival we had been upgraded to a suite overlooking the river.
Our room was beautiful, big, spacious, clean, tastefully decorated, modern and had a great view. The mini bar could have had a few more snacks, but this wasn't a major issue.
We ate out at Crown, a short walk from the hotel. We got back to the hotel at about 2am and ordered room service. No problems, our toasted sandwiches arrived within 10 minutes, with a smile.
The only thing that was a bit annoying was the parking. The turning circle between floors is very tight and with a larger car can be a bit of a problem. We also thought that $20 for the overnight parking was a bit steep.
Overall, our saturday night in the city was extremely enjoyable, made even more so by a very pleasant hotel experience. We would certainly recommend this hotel to others and we are looking forward to going back there ourselves in the near future.
We didn't have breakfast in the restaurant the next morning but it looked to be well used by others staying there and the prices were very reasonable.
