Hotel nice but the downtown area is not safe I was robbed twice on my second day of visit. They stole my cell phone and popped my chain off my neck. My family and I cut my trip short, we booked an early flight home on our second day of arriving. I will never visit there again.

Top floor restaurant was closed, we had only one large towel and had to ask for another one. We had to ask for regular coffee twice before they told us they only had decaf. Food and water at the bar lounge is expensive.

Very happy we booked here for its location and great staff. Everyone was helpful and nice, and it's a very short walk to amazing restaurants and the museums. However, try as we might, we couldn't get the shower right; it was either scalding hot or freezing cold, so we ended up washing with a towelette. The little thing in the sink to lift and lower the plug was broken, too. Overall though, great value for price paid! The Mirador on the 17th floor really is something, too!
