Just be clear what you are getting into.
We upgraded to the penthouse because we were told it would be a nicer experience. I’d already seen the pictures of the large living room and so was extremely interested in that. Unfortunately with they didn’t tell you it’s at the penthouse is up 3 full flights of stairs and that the living room to roughly half the size they are in the other pictures. I’m not sure if I can say this is their fault. All I can say is I had a very clear expectation of what the common living space would be and was very surprised after climbing up three flights of stairs that it was very different. That said the staff were quite nice and helpful and friendly .The year before we had gone and had stayed in the principal in a suite. I picked this one because it looked like it was going to be much larger but in the end I’m not sure it was. In addition the hotel is in a predominantly residential area so you lack the simple access to all of the other shops and restaurants and less you’re willing to take a cab or hoof it. I had initially booked the hotel with hopes that it would have a bit of a wow factor for my wife and we arrived. However because of the split of the nature of the floor plan, that doesn’t really happen. Again none of this says it’s a bad hotel. It just means that you need to be very clear on what you’re looking for when you book it.
