Great location, great style and great staff. The buildings are getting older and need some TLC. At one time it was likely a 4 star hotel, but now I think it is no more than a 3 star.

The hotel has lost its essence, It is no longer a WOW, experience. The room needs a lot of maintenance (very noisy A/C, water coming from nowhere in the floor, cockroaches in the shower, the pillows really uncomfortable, no more "Cameleon experience". Although the staff was great, and we feel welcome all the time.
