Cheesy but true!
I loved this hotel. The rooms are SO cool— a duplex with a table, living area, kitchen area (no pans or pots? but a stove, 2 plates, two sets of dishes and a fridge) on the first floor. THe bed and bathroom are on the second floor. You get a little balcony to see the stellar views during the day and twinkling lights at night.
Breakfast was so good— crunchy granola with sour, kefir-like yogurt, a tiny cup of fresh fruit, homemade marmalade, hearty flaxseed bread, fresh cheese and ham. And of course, freshly squeezed orange juice ( I am a stickler for FRESH vs. concentrate so I know the difference from a mile away!) and coffee or tea that stays very hot in a little hot pot :) If you want it in your room there is no extra charge.
Sparkling clean room. Attentive staff—they could answer ANYTHING, they knew EVERYTHING there was to know about the room and seemed to genuinely like and care about the guests. And they made rockstar awesome, cheap, strong pisco sours for us at their extensive cash bar that doubles as the reception desk).
You just feel cool inside the lobby— tons of architecture books, beautiful modern design (yet homey feeling), and perfect location for bars and restaurants.
If I were going to make one suggestion, I would say that they need to make the internet connection stronger since we needed to go to the lobby more than once to get fast WiFi.
I am a total hotel snob and I've stayed at some really posh places. This hotel is great. Choose it!!
