So beautiful and graceful. The hotel upgraded our room since there where few guests. If that's not service I don't know what is. Very pleased, alot of extra services like wake up call, newspaper or bathrobe etc without extra cost. The breakfast was great. This is a very price worthy hotel. I strongly recommend it. Nothing negative.
