    The lobby bar is fun for a relaxing night out. The rooms are gorgeous! Look on Expedia for their free valet parking specials.

    A lot of city history here. Be sure to walk the hall off to the left of the lobby as you enter. There is a fabulous pictorial history of the hotel.

    When you pay us1.100 a night for a room you expect things to turn out right. We made a reservation for a 2 room condo and a special request for a third bed (10 days in advance), but had to GET HERE...

    Needs a step up in their game. No complimentary gym? Paid internet, in 2014? Breakfast is overpriced - go have it somewhere else. Also, the decor is looking a bit tired.

    Although the hotel is so beautiful, but I don't like the room ! I was in many hotels so I know the room must have a good smell! Our bathroom, after every shower smelled like old pipe!

    Hotel in dire need of refurb. My "deluxe" room didn't even have power at the (scruffy) desk in the room - was told that they'd send me an extension cable instead. My tip? Don't.
