Not impressed at all.
Looks much nicer in photographs. It's a standard hotel gussied up in an attempt to make it look like an Italian villa. Basic architecture with old world elements 'stuck on' like icing on a cake. Bizarre set up with majority of rooms looking into the courtyard that had an oversized 2-story, 2-towered element that was over-scale and very clunky. Motel looking elevator, tried to do 'nice' in the lobby/cafe/check-in desk, but didn't do it. Paid $430 a night and still had to buy coffee in the lobby. Checked in and found the rates to be $306 for same type of room. It's an ordinary hotel trying to look fancy and borders on the cartoonish as to 'what make a hotel elegant'. Also a bizarre location and so many heavily gated doors it seemed prison-like. No, not worth the money. Must add though that the bed was very comfortable and the bathroom was the nicest element of the room.
Mark, 3-night trip
