Great Experience
I had been traveling for 27.5 hours, so I was very grateful to get to the Desmond and go to bed. Overall, my experience at the Desmond was great. I'd been wanting to stay there for a few years, so I was glad to have this opportunity. I just wish I had more time to explore everything the hotel has to offer.
