Editorial review:

This old-world place features contemporary conveniences, a beautiful setting with antiques throughout, French tapestries, Persian rugs, and gorgeous rooms that are uniquely decorated. The service is good and there are good sunset views from the rooftop; however, some critics felt that there were other, more fun places to stay.

          Individual guest reviews

          • The room had a fair amount of street noise and wasnt that quiet, location was good. Hotel staff were great, the lobby was very elegant and service effort was spotless. The bathroom was very nice and the Santa Tea was exceptional. The employees were all very polite and accommodating.

            The bed needs more padding and the elevators ARE really slow.

          • Very comfortable and great location, near Sea World, the renaissance style of the hotel is very enjoyable and a nice change from most hotels. Wonderful decoration in the entrance hall and staff are friendly. Rooms are large and quiet.

            The area seemed dirty and a bit desserted, facilities charge was high, the front desk never called back.
