I was a regular at this hotel. It really is my most favourite hotel and I certainly have travelled the globe. The staff are wonderful, Andrew always greets regulars warmly and then for a real treat that have an alcapone lookalike as a doorman. I can't fault this hotel at all. I've been main redundant so sadly I won't be up there in the near future and will miss the staff greatly.
