Great hotel.
Great hotel! Rooms are clean, spacious and well furnished. They’re also well proofed and insulated, virtually no outside or street noise can be heard. The staff go above and beyond in making your stay as comfortable as possible. I asked the front desk to hold my bags between check out and a late night flight and instead, they offered me a later than usual check out! Solomon is a great concierge and a great help in anything inside and outside the hotel. I decided to skip room service and dine at the rooftop restaurant like I’d done before on a previous (non-stay) visit. Big mistake! It was Latin night so the rooftop was popping. But service was ridiculously slow. Drinks came 25 minutes after ordering. Dinner took over an hour! The 3 wait staff (that I could see) did their best but were seriously overwhelmed by the crowd. I contemplated just up and walking away for room service instead. Breakfast the next morning was meh. Overall I’d stay here again.
