Was put up in one of the penthouse suites for a conference...the suite was larger than my 2 bedroom apartment! All aspects of the stay were first rate. My only complaint is that a tip seemed to be mandatory at the Spa Adagio.

So glad you loved the penthouse suit and most things about your stay! Tips are never mandatory at our spa and I apologize if it felt that way. I'll discuss with the Spa staff. Best regards, Stephen Parker, Hotel Manager

I could be wrong but I don't believe there is one. There are plenty of taxis and Ubers available. It's about $40 for cab from the airport to the hotel
