Grand - now there is a word that needs re-defining!
Nice hotel, location on top of a hill with not much around it means taxi to everywhere, but it does have magnificent views across the city.
I don't know how old it is but the rooms have a sense of an old design,from years gone by. The bedrooms are relatively small, bathrooms smaller, with climb in the bath showers which I personally do not like. Everything worked as it should, clean etc....
The lobby is massive and impressive, with bars and restaurants a-plenty. I thought US$ 20 for a G&T at JJ Mahoneys bar was seriously over-the-top. However the music was seriously good.
Staff all very helpful with loads of smiles, however at times challenged by the English language.
Now to the WiFi story - would you believe US 60c per minute to a maximum of US$ 25 per day and no FREE wifi in the lobby - amazingly in the conference area they double these rates. Captive audience I guess. Sadly there is no close by alternative, such as a coffee shop or bar.
I wouldn't stay again, preferring to be in the heart of the city - and there are lots of better priced alternatives there.
