We only stayed here for one night, but were very impressed by Deco on 44! It was definitely the most expensive place we stayed at during our trip, but we felt we got what we paid for.
First off, the rooms have excellent air conditioners, which was a wonderful escape from the humidity. Rooms are clean and simple, and they come with dvd players and there is a small library of dvds to watch, free of charge, at reception.
The hotel staff were wonderful. They really went above and beyond to make sure we were happy. From the cold towels upon our arrival (best thing ever), to the turn-down service, and the helpful attitudes of the employees, we were really well taken care of.
I would highly recommend the restaurant too - the food was among the best we ate on our trip! Breakfasts were included in our price, and were very substantial! Delicious croissants, nice jam.. I am practically drooling.
My only regret is that we didn't stay here for longer.
