Nice stay
Iron mark burned into carpet on floor in room. Stains on bathroom door and cover over radiator. Bed was two matresses together under one sheet and not one king mattress but still comfortable. Breakfast was great except on Sunday morning when pastry and bread ran out at about 10.10 and wasn't restocked for the rest of the service. Service/friendliness of staff very good. Hotel common areas: lobby, restaurant etc very nicely decorated

Nice hotel, service could use a bit
Overall, this is a gorgeous hotel. It’s very upscale (though reasonably priced) and in a great location; you can walk to city center but you’re not in the noise. The river is lovely, as is the spa. We had a few issues. The room was quiet except for the VERY loud neighbors who were obnoxious until at least 3am. Our room cleaning service on our second day was done without leaving toilet paper! I have cancer and must be able to go to the potty as needed. My husband called down to ask for toilet paper. 45 minutes later when it still hadn’t arrived, he understandably became very angry. They did deliver within a few minutes of the angrier request, but it shouldn’t take an angry 6ft+ 230lb American male (you know what I’m saying) to get that dealt with. The room cleaning during our stay was not particularly thorough, but nevertheless, I’m sure our experience was unique. I certainly hope so anyways. Again, lovely hotel, okay service.
