Travelled with partner
Liked: Cleanliness, staff & service
Disliked: Property conditions & facilities
I have always loved this hotel but the rooms in the original building are worn at the edges. The Modern side and the new lounge etc are gorgeous and when I found out the new rooms were open I wanted to change my reservation but Expedia would not let me. The hotel tried to accommodate, but Expedia said no. I will work directly with the hotel next time. The room was well appointed but loud - could hear water in the shower pipes etc. - definitely overdue for an upgrade of the original rooms.
