Beautiful place to stay. Our room was beautiful. The hotel should make sure that all vehicles can fit in there underground parking. So we tried to call the front desk several times and they never picked up so we had to go down and talk to them. We also found a mysteriously bottle of wine behind the couch that must’ve been there for years because there was dust covering it so they’re obviously not checking very well when they’re cleaning the rooms.
