Wonderful describes this Art Deco hotel. Beautiful food, good service, Well trained staff. We will visit again. The housekeeping was good. It would be ideal if the hotel did bar snacks, just for future ref. I can highly recommend this hotel. It's a cozy hotel. Only drawback no separate pre dinner drinks bar.
