I got a decent price online, and the hotel is quiet, clean, and has nice tubs, which I always appreciate. The decor is bland...very beige for what is supposed to be a high end hotel. For a hotel that is trying to seem Italian and for the size of the room service bill, I would have expected better food. The heirloom tomatoes on my expensive salad were two cherry tomato halves, not even two cherry tomatoes halved. The pizza had a soggy crust. The gelato was bland. It would have been a trek to go someplace else before my morning cab so I got a bagel with salmon and cream cheese, hard to ruin, right? Wrong! There was too much salmon while the egg was three wafer thin slices of a quail's egg and the cream cheese was the size of a cheap pat of butter...not enough for even a quarter of a bagel. For the price, stay some place that feels updated, has things to do nearby, and a decent restaurant.
