“Great find in reasonable but not great location.”
Reviewed May 20, 2012

Great find in reasonable but not great location near Sin city and big shopping center.
Got upgraded to a large balcony suite but all rooms in this hotel are reported to be generous with space.
In the morning one of the best buffet breakfasts I have ever seen in any hotel in Europe. Wow! what a great selection.
Good food, classy restaurant and room service.
Nice surprise, also, in this central hotel having a swimming pool.
Also has a Casino and is situated very close to Sin city(Night entertainment complex) and a large shopping centre with 10 minutes walk away.
Nice friendly staff, would stay here again.

Just stayed one night, but wish it was for longer. Booked 4 rooms for an extended family visit. They put us all together in what felt like a very private wing - I think just six rooms in the wing. Rooms were fantastic, massive for a city centre hotel and very comfortable.

Breakfast was excellent - huge choice. Pool and Spa Centre really good. Artwork around the Hotel was stunning, really gave what is a modern unremarkable looking building from the outside a unique feel.

Finally service was excellent - no problem storing luggage for late flight.

Overall, hard to fault.

Checked in on my wifes birthday and the receptionist picked this up from our ID cards - and as we started to unpack a bottle of very nice sparkling wine came, compliments of the hotel.Now that is service. Rooms great, very comfortable and the food good. But its the service and the artwork which we'll remember - we'll definitely be back

Cavernous room which must have been +30m2... all very comfortable. Artwork a bit intense in the breakfast room, but helps you wake up.

Stayed in a triple room Dec 2011. Huge bed in seperate room, triple bed was a sofa couch- which was adequate. Most importantly they agreed to hold onto our luggage while we had to fly out of the country for 5 days! Upon our return,the bag was there just as we left it (very impressive)!!Location is within walking distance of scenic downtown, mall and restaurants. parking available and free Wifi. Very delicious and large breakfast buffet. Absolutely wonderful bathrooms!!

Room Tip: Stayed on first floor, with no noted noise or problem.
