The grandness of the hotel, its history and location make it a great place to stay. The bed was very comfortable and we received a nice upgrade to a suite as member of the chain.
So we recommend staying here. But there are a few minor things that suggest that it may need to be more attentive to guests. There was a line both at checkin and checkout with only two people there, one being on the phone often and not very welcoming. Our room was an hour and a half late, perhaps because of the upgrade but it was still a little annoying. One bag brought to us was not ours. And I share the frustration of other reviewers that it costs ten dollars to print a couple of pages since you have to pay for internet at the business centre then about a dollar a page. Penny pinching that is unnecessary and out of fashion. Perhaps they have just taken their eye off their customers a bit.
But overall the stay was very good and we look forward to going back again
