We stayed here from December 8th - 10th on business. Hotel was beautiful and well decorated for Christmas. Staff was very friendly and helpful. Food was excellent. A couple of points for improvement: 1. Music from the weddings being held outside at night is far too loud and too late - especially for anyone there on business. 2. Check-in took...

Spectacular room. Perhaps the finest hotel I've ever visited. The Spiral breakfast buffet was so far over the top, it took 10 minutes to walk through all the offerings.
