    Watch for the credit card holding, they say its 200 but its actually 1200 dollars. The staff is undertrained and overall experience not good. Dont recommend this hotel :(

    Complimentary glass of champagne at check-in and great restaurants on site and several in walking distance. Be sure to get a "tower" room if you like it quiet.

    If ur looking for something different and a little more action, this is a good option in a good location. Does it stack up to the Ritz, Four Seasons, etc? Not so sure, but the prices do.

    Ate at scampo. Was not as good as I'm used too. Seems like everything was premade. Ordered the duck. 3 minutes later, no exaggeration I had the duck. Not what I expect from a quality resturant.
