First let me say don't let the past sway you from staying in this hotel. Security today is top notch--the most serious yet polite I've seen anywhere.
A beautiful hotel with superb staff; I believe every floor has its own butler to help guests. I was on a business trip and had to work all day; I told a person at the front desk I needed something from the pharmacy and the staff picked it up for me and had it waiting in my room when I returned from work that evening; they only charged me the cost of the medicine. The Indian restaurant is disappointing but the Sea Lounge is very nice.
