This is a beautiful hotel in a great location. The staff was courteous and helpful. When we booked our stay, we requested adjoining rooms to be close to our daughter and we were happy our request was fulfilled. The rooms were small, but adequate.The location of the rooms however were not great as there was a lot of traffic noise. Our rooms were located on the second floor, so I would make sure to request a higher floor. We enjoyed afternoon tea the day we arrived and it was quite nice. We were able to make a reservation one and one-half hours after we had arrived. We also enjoyed room service for breakfast and pre-ordered the night before for a specific time. They were very prompt, which we appreciated. Overall, I would recommend this hotel, but for a five star luxury hotel, we felt wi-fi should be included and was too expensive.
