Park View room with no park view. Restaurant that is NOT for Hotel Guests. Concierge that is not available and tells you he can't get a table in the hotel restaurant and that he will call you in 90 minutes. Overall, very arrogant and disappointing hotel.

We stayed in the hotel for one night and left early in the morning. Staffs were very helpful and the service was impeccable. The only con to me is the decorations and furnitures are too modern and not matching the history of this hotel from first glance in my view. Everything else is great.
