I stay in a lot of hotels when I travel on business and this is by far, hands down the greatest hotel experience I have ever had.

I was there for ministry and the guys took care of us. I was looking a plug in the room until I called housekeeping 😂😂😂. Breakfast was lovely and uniquely prepared for each of us. Thank you for living according to your legacy. Big ups to the team. Will surely call again. Read less

We stayed here for one night as part of a bigger trip. It is very safe and in a great location for restaurants and shopping. The rooms were nice and spacious. Our biggest issue was the check in process was beyond slow and the concierge was awful. We stood and waited to ask about restaurants as she talked to a colleague and didn't make any eye contact and then we finally just left. When we finally went back, they tried to sell us a package for a day tour that was phenomenally expensive. We were able to do it ourselves for about 1/5 of the price by calling the company directly. We had also asked that they help us get the same driver to drive us that had driven us from the airport for our day tour, but she said she called and said he was booked. He happened to drive us back to the airport the following day and he said he wasn't booked at all. I just would avoid relying on the property for any assistance with booking anything. Read less

This hotel is located in the Melrose Arch area. It is surrounded by wonderful bars and restaurants all within walking distance. Starbucks is a block away (for caffeine addicts like me...lol). Rooms are spacious and quiet. Elevators are quick. Security amble and pleasant. Uber easy to find however you must walk a block or two to get to the pick up… Read more
This hotel is located in the Melrose Arch area. It is surrounded by wonderful bars and restaurants all within walking distance. Starbucks is a block away (for caffeine addicts like me...lol). Rooms are spacious and quiet. Elevators are quick. Security amble and pleasant. Uber easy to find however you must walk a block or two to get to the pick up locations. Pillows are hard and uncomfortable. Internet sporadic and terrible...only get access to typical websites..unable to get to company Outlook. Had to work from Starbucks for company connections. Definitely recommended and a must for Leisure Traveling...would not recommend for business travel due to internet issues Read less

Stayed for only one night although this is a location that is for longer stay. Hotel staff was very friendly and helpful. Rooms have a detailed autograph collection style and breakfast was incredible. The shops in the streets close to the hotel all well worth visiting.
