This is one of the most beautiful, well-managed hotels of a modern design I have been in.
There were 30 of us who were greeted by close to 10 staff members directing us through a series of spaces and staircases to refreshments where the manager made an excellent welcoming talk indicating his pleasure of having us, what we could expect and what was available. This was a true first, and the rest of the hotel was as well-managed as this opening.
The hotel is magnificent with old stone walls, much glass and many seating areas with beautiful design characteristics The rooftop restaurant displays the town in magnificent fashion and provides an unique dining experience. The Mirror Bar would be the prime dating place were one dating, so let's just say a romantic bar. Everything quite beautiful, and all designed by our own Moshe Safdi who did the Jepson Center for the Telfair Museum in Savannah, GA
But, Moshe should have restricted his work to large and open spaces and let a woman create spaces for bedrooms. While lovely upon first sight and with an ingenious manner of a transparent bathroom which can have the walls clouded by the turn of a switch, the rooms became a nightmare in which to live for more than one night. Electric switches near the floor, insufficient table space, square bathtub preventing laying back, small hallway with closet doors reducing the hall by half, low slung bed ……. in other words, just plain uncomfortable.
