Let's start this review with a solid 5 star rating.
As a seasoned business traveler, I have grown accustomed to your standard upscale Hilton properties and the various amenities they offer. So if that's what you are looking for, this will be a shock to your system. This is nothing like the Hilton.
The rooms are very large. The floors are stained cement. The walls are made from various materials and painted in complementary colors. There is a very BIG environmental GREEN statement being made in the room. Organic everything. Motion sensors to turn off lights. Only one TV in the sitting room (personally I would add a TV in the bedroom).
Paintings by local artists are used to decorate .... And those paintings are available for sale. High end Egyptian rugs are placed throughout the rooms. The shower was big enough for five ... So bring friends. Everything is very nice, just different.
The hotel's staff was first class. From the minute I spoke with Joseph, making my reservation, I was dealing with a caring person. The guys at the front desk were great. The hotels manager, the son of he owner, was very accommodating when it to my request for a late checkout. I can't say enough good things about the hotel.
