Disappointing
Thought the decor was a little tired. Breakfast was a little slap-dash. No coffee/tea in the room unlike other hotels of this standard during covid. Overall, could have been better.

From the welcoming front desk staff, clean rooms, food service and location everything was top notch. Head Concierge (Gavin) and his assistant-went above and beyond to help with restaurant recommendations, sight seeing (esp. given COVID restrictions). even got one restaurant to provide a comp. champagne welcome. Both in house restaurants were very good. But Aizle (6/7 course tasting menu) was something truly special.
