I stayed at the property for three nights in one of their suites. The room was absolutely huge, with a beautiful view of the city, gorgeous bedroom area, living area, massive bathroom and station where the mini bar and coffee machine were.
Quite frankly, there was enough room to entertain a few friends or guests if I had wanted, and still have space to move around.
