We walked through these rooms to get to our lovely superior king garden room which is part of the new section of the hotel. Our room was quite...

It is a deluxe hotel so a splurge, but do it if you can. Ask for a room in the main building overlooking the gardens with it's statue...

Treated some friends and myself to this culinary experience for a special birthday. Was not disappointed. Presentation of the food and flavours was just amazing. There was so much food - we were given very stylish doggy bags to take home! Both service and all the fine detail was to die for - china;silverware; linen napkins etc Wonderful!

Perfect location (near hop on, hop off green bus line), attentive and friendly staff. Loved the courtyard and cozy bar. The hotel is being renovated but, at least in May 2015, the work did not impact our stay. The plans to improve will make this a showcase hotel, not that it is not already. I would return in a heartbeat....
