It's a nice hotel, but it doesn't deserve its 5 stars. Our room (a junior suite) had seen better days. The service was ok, but not perfect because of a shortage of staff. The location is great and the breakfast buffet is wonderful.
I would say that overall, it is a good experience, but in this price range the expectation is higher.
