We found this property online and booked it since it had such stellar reviews on Trip Advisor. Booking was a bit tricky as you have to sign a very binding contract and fax it back to confirm your booking. Not the easiest if you're already travelling. However, check-in was really easy, straight forward and even though there isn't parking beside the building it was quite easy to find and really close to the hotel.
We stayed in a studio and the suite itself is modern and clean; aside from the incredibly dusty wall which we cleaned ourselves. The rooftop patio is a definite bonus and we were more then happy to take advantage of that! All and all they've done a really good job on the layout of the suite and all the renovations within the hotel.
However, there are some downfalls... One is that there's not a lot of soundproofing as you would expect from an older building. You definitely run the risk of keeping your upstairs neighbours hours which in our case was pretty much all night for most of our stay. The second is that there is no housekeeping which is definitely something you'd expect if you're spending $1000 for a week. If we wanted our room cleaned we had to pre-arrange it at a cost of $30 which I found strange.
All and all the place was great but personally t I don't think it's somewhere I'd stay again.
