  • Liked: Cleanliness
  • Disliked: Amenities, property conditions & facilities

This is a complete ripoff based upon reputation and not on excellence in service or hospitality. Honestly, an American Howard Johnson hotel could outrank this property (and I am not exaggerating). Pros: great location, gorgeous breakfast area, and superb concierges (among the best I've come across). Cons: the rooms are extremely dated - brass and faux gold trimmings everywhere - no modern amenities, the pool is shockingly small that no more than 2 or 3 people could do lap swimming in it. Even though we bought the room/breakfast package, their breakfast is an embarrassment - 3-4 heated items, very limited fruits and pastries, and an extra cost for simple things like omeletes. The breakfast staff is also rude and totally uninterested in mingling with guests. It was so bad we just went elsewhere for breakfast; BA has so many great cafes, why settle for a second-rate breakfast? The hotel, in summary, is in dire need of an overhaul, looks and feels dated, and is not worth the money we spent. Would not recommend as this city has many more affordable options with higher standards of service and amenities.

Smell and leak....

Smelled like sewage and had a significant water leak. Notified the front desk about the water leak and smell when showering and they sent someone up to fix it but no repair was made, it was only cleaned up and perfumed. We tried using the shower again later that night and the leak showed up again. The tech was able to find the simple leak but not easily repair so we had to move rooms around midnight. They did give a small discount off the restaurant but nothing off our room. The food was good but more bar food and nothing fancy. The spa however was great. I’d still recommend this place because your options for 5 stars are limited.

This is a beautiful property and has great staff- especially Emanuel. Centrally located. Only room for improvement is their housekeeping/butler response time.
