We stayed here for just one night. The room was beautiful with a huge bed. Hotel staff were great. It is a busy hotel so not possible to checkin early. We had lunch and dinner there. Both times the food was beautiful.only down side was having to carry bags up 2 flights and down 1 to get to our room.
