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

    Go to Laurel Court (the bar/restaurant) and grab an exclusive honey saison from Almanac Brewing made from honey collected on site.

    I've never actually stayed here, but I would absolutely recommend wandering through during the Christmas season. It's all sorts of merry and bright.

    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.

    You're probably starting to get hungry since Thursday, but try not to eat this giant Gingerbread house. Instead take a complimentary refreshment while enjoying the music. Sat, 11/29, 11am-2pm. Free. Read more

    The special events in the Grand Ballroom like fashion shows. I recently attended and shot with my iPhone 6 and was amazed how it was.

    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...

    Tolles, ehrwürdiges Hotel! Je höher das Zimmer im Turm, desto besser die Aussicht

    Fancy Hotel with loud music coming from the lobby at night.

    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.

    I was not satisfied with Internet. The price of Internet is to high and just one device can connected with one account !

    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!

    Don't forget to check out Tonga downstairs! One of the coolest restaurant lounges I've been to

    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.

    The Tonga Room downstairs is wild, tacky tiki fun. Order a Volcano and call a cab.

    Great hotel but the hallways are eerily similar to The Shining!

    Got a discount due to a conference and we arrived late. They put us up in the Napoleon Suite, or should I say, apartment. It was awesome. Staff is super friendly! Excellent place to stay.
