Warm, friendly and most welcoming - - We arrived at the hotel and check in went smoothly. Just beautiful marble all around, glass chandeliers, winding stairway etc. Mostly, we arrived there about 7:30am and they were so gracious they let us into our room early since we had been up for 24 hours. What a room! It was a large room with a balcony with a view of the center of town to the far right. The concierge's name was Gonceco - he was most helpful and right on about directions and places to eat and visit. There were four of us (2 rooms) and we had such a wonderful experience. The bar area was lovely with a piano player. We sat there the first night after our wandering and tiring day to enjoy some port wine and music. Service was gracious and very helpful in choosing our Port.
