This is a good five star hotel. The Junior Suite we stayed in was a fantastic size and very well appointed. The staff were very helpful, although this hotel is not as generous with complimentary items as you may expect from a hotel of this class. The staff were very accommodating, allowing us to change the date of a reservation even though it was an advance booking that wasn't supposed to be changed.
The decor throughout the hotel is perhaps a little dated, but it's not necessarily a bad thing. It feels classy in a sort of 80s Monaco way.
Breakfast was delicious and a good buffet. That said, the staff at breakfast were sloppy. On two occasions we went up to get food only to come back and find our table given to somebody else. I also saw this happen to a number of other customers, as well as clearing people's tables when they hadn't left yet. It is ridiculous that a hotel of this stature hasn't worked out a system to avoid this - you have to assume it happens fairly often!
