Stayed here for a weekend on arrival from the UK. Booked the hotel because of the discount on offer, but was concerned we maybe a bit mature for this hotel. We needn't have worried. At first the welcome and level of service seemed effusive, gushing and generally OTT, quickly realised that this because of the standards we have become used to in the UK and that the Andaz standard should be what every 4 & 5 star hotel should aspire to. the room 401 was quirky, a bit low on light, smallish. the double bed was also small, but very comfortable apart from that. With the shower and toilet partially exposed some may find this uncomfortable - but it just adds to the originality of the hotel. Situated near the lifts noise was not an issue, nor was there any noise from guests or clubbers, referred to in other reviews.
The roof terrace was a superb relaxed location for breakfast and would recommend the Eggs Benedict, but the bar areas were soulless when we used them on Sunday night and eye watering lay expensive.
Staff offered to go out and post letters for me and supply stamps FOC, and the valet parking attendant, returned my driving licence and camera to me within minutes of finding it in the well of the car.
Overall excellent value with a a level of service and staff enthusiasm other establishments should aspire to.
Oh, and we didn't feel too old or out of place at 61, were made to feel very welcome, and thoroughly enjoyed our stay, making it a memorable start to our vacation.
