It's an interesting building in a pleasant location.
Check in was a somewhat impersonal (perhaps insincere) and the reservation details didn't match my conversations with iChat direct. That was resolved.
The hotel floors are rather warren like and you'll find lost clients trying to locate their rooms.
Anything additional is expensive here. $50 for the club entry, $40 for parking. At the weekend there are much cheaper alternatives for parking ($10) next to the hotel
The champagne and rum bar is a bar, with champagne and rum among the offerings. It is branding nothing else. Some would call the bar lively. Rowdy might be an alternate description.
The in house dining options aren't exciting and there are much better alternatives nearby.
Ongoing issues with my electronic key had me wondering if I had become magnetic. Does anyone else get bored being told by front office staff that it must be something in your wallet or an electronic device?
Note although it states that a room key is needed to get the elevator to go to guest floors it isn't activated which seemed surprising.
There was also a lack of front staff to get taxis. They were always busy there are just too few of them.
So nice hotel, nice location but nothing to really get you to love this place. Everything including the wall art just has that 'corporate' feeling that gives you little to attach to.
