If it was not a Four Season, i would have given it 6 stars! But it's a four seasons, so the bar is high. This hotel is narrow and you can tell that the lobby and the cafe on the GF are small but very nicely decorated of course. The staff is welcoming and very polite. The rooms are very good, very clean with L'Occitane Toiletry. The Bathroom is very large but the room is just right in size. Of course the bed is very comfortable with luxury linen etc.. I like the small box of Lebanese pastries they placed in the room on 2 occasions, nice touch.
Aside from a set of rooms, i believe one per floor, that are on the corner of the Bldg, the view from the hotel, even though supposedly sea view, sucks.. it gives over a large field that is being leveled (see the picture i posted) and a little bit on the side over the Zeitouneh Bay, but the main view just dead ahead is this ugly landfill; sad. I guess some rooms have a city garden view, but i am sure there is not much to see from the back of the Bldg and i would avoid them at all cost if possible.
The Gym is small, it has weights (maximum dumbbell of 20kg (around 45 pounds), and a couple of other machines along with some treadmills; really small. The relaxation room in the Spa is actually a waiting room and is also tiny. The locker room however is very nice with sauna, jacuzzi and all kind of decent toiletries, i loved it.
Parking is a rip off, 20$ per night. This is a LOT for Lebanon where Valet parking charges 3$, those are Boston and Chicago prices not Beirut!
The roof top has a swimming pool, not much swimming can be done, it's just a small pool without possibility of doing laps and as of 7pm it turns into a lounge/bar.
When it comes to location, aside from Zeitouneh bay and some overpriced stores (jewelry, Brioni and Porsche) there is not much in that area, but it is quite central if you have a car or if you take a cab.
