It is the little things that holds this place back. Otherwise, it is an excellent hotel.
First the negative. Our taxi brought us in from the airport and pulled up to the front entrance. A bellman was standing about five feet from us as we struggled to get our luggage out and into the hotel. The entire time the bellman was busy talking to someone who appeared to be a friend and made no effort whatsoever to help. As the saying goes, you only get one chance to make a first impression.
Our room was an executive king, and was spacious and well decorated. Other than having repeated trouble with malfunctioning electronic room keys, the room exceeded expectations. The bed was comfortable with nice linens. Harry's Bar is a delightful spot for a drink. The hotel location is ideal for shopping, dining or theater going.
In spite of the couple of annoying issues, I would stay there again.
