This is probably the most overtly ostentatious hotel that I have stayed in. It reflects the appearance of the city, not to my taste but it is what it is.
The rooms are large, well-appointed and very comfortable: appropriate for a hotel with a 5-star rating. Needed an iron and weighing scale and the items were brought to my room, no problem.
The rooftop restaurant has a fabulous view, the dinner was pretty good.
Breakfast was high quality too with good choices.
The biggest bonus was the spa. I treated myself to a pre-flight visit before departure and was really impressed by the warm, friendly skilled and professional staff. Surprisingly reasonable rates,
