    Staff were all great. The concierge in particular was so very helpful to us. Each day of our stay she helped with restaurant reservations, transportation, etc, always with a cheerful friendly smile. The location was great, walkable from the theater and many restaurants, and steps from an underground station.

    Grout was coming up in the bathroom. Room was fine but not special. Breakfast in the restaurant wasn’t good.

    Hotel location and rooms were outstanding. Within walking distance of almost every site and restaurant area we wanted to visit.

    Buyer beware: We were charged a "flexible rate" at check out which meant we were charged a different rate for each day of our stay. This turned out to be more expensive than we expected and the explanation offered for these daily rate differences was not explained to our satisfaction. Also, our rooms were warm at night with insufficient air conditioning in our rooms.

    The hotel is situated in the perfect location. The use of the Amba Lounge was an added bonus. We had dinner in the restaurant which was wonderful. Also used room service one evening which was lovely and arrived quickly from when ordered.
