There's no denying that this is beautiful and well taken care of. The rooms are gorgeous, and the bathroom is a very decent size. Always a plus when you're a girl and and travelling with an arsenal of makeup and beauty products.
So I had a problem one night, i went down to the reception to speak to the agent. He was too prompt in telling me he'd take care of it. No apology, just a curt we'll take care of it. While he stayed true to his word, the lack of empathy was surprising. It wasn't something I expected from such a prestigious hotel.
The staff are what make a hotel a home away from home, and in this instance, I did not feel it at all! Breakfast was okay, again not what Id expect from a hotel in its class.
Just a note: this hotel caters more to upscale older travellers. It might not be so fun for a younger, hip crowd.
