Real nice hotel but has several annoying issues
Rooms and bar lounge were real nice. Beautiful hotel. Close to center of town and bus/train stations. Three things were annoying: 1) No place/flat surface in bathroom to put toiletries 2) Floors are not level so even though they have elevators, every floor has several different tiered floors with steps so you have to lift your luggage up/down steps multiple times to get to tour room. 3) Free parking uses valet and packs cars into small space - you need to give 0.5-1+ hrs notice to ensure car is ready. Better to pay nearby parking garage.
