Liked: Cleanliness, staff & service, property conditions & facilities
It has great French Restaurant and coffee/cake shop - must try. Room is very nice, new, and clean. Good free valet parking as well. Very good service as well. Two minor issues (1) during my stay, the room temperature won't be adjusted - some temp. sensor broke. It was not fixed even after their maintenance persons came twice (2) not much around this hotel. Feng Shui of this hotel has big problem.
