Staff at this hotel was incredible. Don't forget to checkout rooftop 360 view of the city. It's a historical hotel so very old with a rich history. Great location with live music on the weekends.

3/5 Okay

Liked: Cleanliness, staff & service, amenities
The location of the property was convenient, and most of the staff was very nice and helpful. But there were a few things that made me very unhappy. When I arrived it was early in the day so I did not expect my room to be ready but when I returned they still did not have a room for me, and lost all my information. When my room was finally ready it was the smallest room in the hotel. I asked for a larger room and was willing to pay for it however, they insisted there were 0 rooms available but the hotel was essentially empty the whole time I was there, along with another guest also informing me the hotel was not sold out. The menu was very limited and they did not even have a room service menu, I only knew they had room service because I passed rooms that had carts outside. I was very disappointed in this hotel and it was really two staff members that treated me as a second class citizen.

Wonderful property in great location. Rooms are silent, very large with huge bathrooms. The service is spectacular. The hotel is elegant, traditional and has been modernized. The tamascal spa experience was wonderful also. The rooftop bar, restaurant and pool is very pretty and has gorgeous views too. We will definitely stay again. Thanks
