Pros: The wine social was a fun addition to the stay. They beds were very comfortable. The style of the hotel was very charming, with the beefeater to greet you at the door. The location of the hotel was perfect for my trip.
Cons: The bathrooms are really small.

Pros: Location
Cons: After a long flight from New Zealand we were on arrival given a room right below the dance floor of the night club on the 21st floor. The noise from above was so ridiculous that we had to move to another room in the middle of the night. This room had a stinking bathroom, a smoke detector hanging from the wall and through the connecting door we could literally hear to conversation of our neighbors. The next day we had to move rooms again and finally ended up in a room that was acceptable (but definitely not perfect) and in line with what we had booked. We never received a formal apology or an explanation for the way we were treated.
