An amazing property. Great location in the heart of everything.
Every inch of the hotel is gorgeous. There are rich woods, beautiful marble, calm and quiet colors. The lobby is well organized.
Everything is sparkling clean. There isn't a cobweb or a grimey corner anywhere. Bathrooms in the public areas are well stocked and kept pristine. The room itself was spotless, every fixture looked freshly polished, there were no stains or odors or signs that anyone had ever used the room before me!
The room was magnificent, with a fireplace, a lovely terrace, two closets, a sitting room and a large bedroom with a desk big enough to really work. The internet connection was fast.
Furniture is comfortably upholsetered and there are good chairs for working at the desk and lounging. There is also a great sofa in front of the tv and a daybed.
The bed was large and comfortable, the linens snowy white and crisp. There were mounds of towels and plentiful lotions, shampoos and soaps. The bathroom was huge, with a private area for the commode, two sinks, a good size counter for makeup, a super soaking tub. The shower was as good as my wonderful bathroom at home, with strong water pressure and an unending supply of hot water.
The property and the room were topped only by the staff. Bellmen, front desk team, concierge, housekeeper, operator and business center -- every person was friendly, helpful, anticipating every need.
Room service was prompt, delivering one of the fluffiest, tastiest omelets I have ever enjoyed. Coffee was piping hot and robust.
