We stayed at this utterly charming hotel for five days in September 2011, as part of a conference. The rooms are beautifully decorated in old world charm but with all the modern day conveniences. The hotel is centrally located with lots of restaurants close by. Breakfasts were hearty; lounge was a bit spartan. Service staff were attentive and knew our names and wishes by the first evening. Kudos to the concierge staff, who managed to find us a cab despite the fact that the entire downtown area was closed to traffic for a marathon. This meant phoning around to 'find' an available limo, asking him to wait and running with us, bags and all, at least five city blocks to our waiting chauffeur. I dont know how we would have gotten to the airport on time if they had not helped us. Definitely deserving the 5 star rating.
