Praise for customer service and food

Most reviewers expressed positive opinions about the customer service, describing staff as friendly, helpful and eager to please. Guests ordering room service thought the food was good. Food and service at the two restaurants impressed most diners, although some thought prices weren't very competitive. The Swiss-inspired buffet breakfast was extensive and attracted glowing reports from most diners.

Stylish hotel offered comfortable stay

Grumbles about Wi-Fi charges

Most guests said they couldn't understand why there were charges for using the in-room Wi-Fi service when free Wi-Fi comes as standard at so many other high-end hotels.

Extras were pricey

From parking to minibar prices, there was criticism from some quarters for the premium rates guests often faced for incidentals and extra services during their stays.

Rooms had some drawbacks

A few reviewers encountered problems with their rooms such as plumbing issues, stained carpets and tired-looking furniture. According to some critics, housekeeping sometimes neglected to change towels.
