We did not go to the observation deck, but did visit the bar which I believe was on the 11th floor. Great, pretty drinks! Awesome views out the windows and wonderful seating areas. Just a beautiful restored hotel!

Just ask the reseptionist, and she will give you the keycard for 30th floor. Walk the stairs and enjoy the amazing view! There is also a small and cute museum
