5 out of 5
We were all thrilled with our stay. The hotel is newly renovated and beautiful. The staff was outstanding, from our precheckin email (things to do, sites to see and info about local area), to warm welcome by Bellman (in top hat), exquisite lunch, complete with explanation of local cuisine and service throughout our stay! True gem. Amazing service. Fantastic connecting rooms perfect for families. Unbeatable central location. Helpful and effective concierge for recommendations and bookings. Thank you to Alfredo, Illinjan, Gabrielle, David (not the statue), Edy and all the staff. Remarkable and very enjoyable visit. Would definitely return to this hotel. It is not a stay, it is an experience.

Excellent Hotel & Staff

Pros: Free breakfast, Close restaurants, Quiet, prime location
My husband and I were there just before New Years 2011 and the hotel was fabulous! This hotel is situated in a prime location. Close to major attractions. One of the best features of the hotel beside the perfect location are the very professional and helpful staff. Everyone at the hotel was friendly and always willing to impart their expertise on their beautiful city. If in need of assistance in finding great restaurants or tips on how best to avoid the crowds at the various attractions the hotel staff always provided excellent information. Our room was very spacious. My husband and I thoroughly enjoyed our stay there and will definitely return.
