The staff is always professional and friendly. The room was on the interior of the building from the street which meant no view of the city, but an amazingly peaceful night of sleep.

Very unique luxury hotel. The staff makes it. Every one we encountered went out of their way to do something nice (i.e. holding elevator to room suggestion) PERFECT!
