This is a 4 Star Hotel.
The concept for this hotel is very nice. I would tweak a few thing like PRIVATE bathrooms. But, I love the concept and the hotel is beautiful.
This hotel is situated in a very good location. It is surrounded by many high end stores and a Woolworth store within walking distance.
From the moment we arrived, the front desk staff was extremely pleasant and friendly. The room was very nice. We ordered room service on our first night but we didn't receive our order for approximately a hour and a half. But, they were very sorry so it was no big deal.
The decor of the hotel is very beautiful. My only negative was the shower being in the room. My bed was next to the shower. That fact provided fodder for many jokes LOL.
A big plus for this hotel was the available plug, in the room, for US electronics.
Overall, we had a very good stay.
