Best hotel I have ever stayed in. Unbelievable architecture. Must be seen to be believed and I had the lowest category room. How it is not a member of the LHW I don't know.

Absolutely Amazing hotel!!
We travelled for our 25th wedding anniversary and stayed one night. From airport pick-up (with free wi-fi in the car) it was 5-star luxury all the way!! The rooms are gorgeous, the staff is fantastic and the service is top notch! Best turn-down service EVER! No ordinary breakfast buffet, oh no they serve every table with its own buffet tray!! The private jacuzzi was the reason we picked this hotel and we are so glad we did - one of the best hotels we have ever stayed at. The only thing I would change is to have a vanity table with a stool, mirror and electric outlet so you can sit down and do your hair and make up instead of standing at the bathroom mirror with the hairdryer plugged into the shaver!
