AAA Inspector Notes
Inspector Pick (Classification): The bling of glittering chandeliers, gold gilt and marble pillars is what I love about this old beauty. Try to take a peek in the gorgeous ballrooms.
The spacious lobby at this grand hotel has a stunning imperial theme. Rooms combine modern décor with distinctive historical elements to create an elegant upscale ambience. Some units are on the small size. If you need more space, you might want to splurge on a suite; options range from junior suites to the spectacular royal suite where Queen Elizabeth II once stayed. Smoke free premises. 407 units, some kitchens. 12 stories, interior corridors.
