Sad face IconDisliked: Cleanliness, amenities
We chose the penthouse, because I felt like a penthouse would be good. It wasn’t. We flew late at night from the US only to learn that the penthouse was on the 5th floor and they didn’t have an elevator. This made it impossible to stop by quickly at the hotel to get a hat or quickly change a shirt. We didn’t stay. We left the same night and went and stayed at their sister property with an elevator. From what I could see, the penthouse terrace was nice but I wasn’t about to do stairs the whole time.

Every thing was fine except the non availability of lift. I am a 70 years old senior citizen and given a room on 4th floor. I had to jump 64 stairs to reach in room. It was difficult to go second time in room in day
