Hands down to the doormen. They were just great! They set the tone for the stay: young, friendly, and professional staff. Everyone was accomidating as possibly during our visit. It's not your average "stuck up" 4+ star hotel, so don't go if you are looking for flaws. It's a layed back atmosphere in a sophisticated setting. You can be dressed up or dressed down. The "front desk" is actually to your far left. Welcoming reception. It was as if they couldn't do enough for us. I had called in the night before and asked if all alcohol be removed from mini-fridge.. not a problem. Our room was just as described over the phone. We were placed on the top floor (preferred guest) without any request. Take note: you will be charged a $75 deposit fee for room costs that will be refunded. I wasn't aware of this and brought it to front desk's attention. They were very sympathetic and comped us a free breakfast and beverages. (Refund arrived next day in account). Room was clean, small (which I had expected), and minimalist. No bells and whistles if you are used to that. We liked it just the way it was. Wish there was a bath, but the shower was just fine. I would suggest they offer a bit more in the bathroom (shower caps,...something more than just shamp, cond, and lotion). Closet was full of creature comforts (robe, coffee, fridge, etc). Room service was fast! Food was pricey yet great (my tea was organic!). If you have time, wander around the place! A lot of interesting artistic flair here and there. It's just a very comfortable hotel that you can either feel like royalty in or just hang out in jeans- it's a flexible setting. Location is awesome for those of us who like to walk around the city. Great pubs, restaurants and shops within blocks. We enjoyed lounging on the velvet couch cushions soaking in the atmosphere and admiring the old woodwork while the fire crackled. If you hate techno/electronica music, be prepared. It's subtle enough, but non-stop (didn't bother us). We'll be back.
