LUXURIOUS? well, Hotel President obviously does a good marketing, travel guides repeat the hotels' statements in the commercials: "pure luxury", but after spending one night there (we planned to stay 2 nights) I have to say: it is a very average hotel, rather 3 than 4 stars. Everything is ok and average, except for the prices. The rooms are ok, but nothing special, the bathroom had 5 square meters and only a shower. Our room was recommended at the reception as a bit bigger and more ecpensive room (and it was still off season). But for 190€ you definetly can find much better places. The service is really friendly, but not extremely well educated. And the prices for drinks and food are extraordinarily high (a glass of FREIXENET for 25€ ?).
The restaurant showed the same experience, for a very ordinary 2 course meal, which was ok, but nothing special or fancy or extremely nice, with a bottle of local white wine we payed almost 200€, even Dubrovnik was not as expensive (and much better) than this dinner.
I have no idea how this hotel can charge those prices. After staying at the Hilton in Dubrovnik (very expensive but very nice) this hotel was a huge disappointment, since you simply feel cheated paying huge anmounts for very average things.
I would not recommend to stay at the hotel President.
