6/10 Good

Absolutely need more than 1500 characters to type this but I’m going to sum it all up best as possible. Arrival and entrance beautiful. Rooms was okay , for that type of money I was expecting top quality and a bigger size tv. The cleaning was okay you can tell they rush sweep the floors and they don’t sweet under the beds. Balcony had no seating so not sure how they wanted that to be enjoyed just standing . In house restaurant was okay but the staff is very nice and friendly and one made my bday extra special with a surprise piece of cake. The elevators weren’t working for a long amount of time and I was due to get ready for my bday dinner and had to walk up 11 flights of stairs in a rainy flooded stairwell. Contacted the front desk never could get a answer, talked to concierge and was assured the manager would take care and accommodate for something NOTHING. No phone call no anything and paying this type of money this is totally unacceptable in my book even if not the fault of the establishment. You have to make that right and appease your guest at all cost then to not even call was 2 slaps in the face instead of one. The hotel is nice but that whole walking up 11 flights of stair will be the first thing I remember about my whole experience and it will be that memory that will make me not book or recommend booking to anyone I know.

A vacation in a hotel in a wonderful city
Just a wonderful hotel spa... a vacation within the vacation. Lovely facilities in a great location. There was somebody in our room; we were quickly upgraded and given breakfast and drink vouchers. The restaurant in the hotel provided wonderful meals and we could walk throughout the city. We will be back.
