Great location. Beautiful room. Fabulous staff. We arrived super early because our cruise ship let us off the ship at 6:30 AM. The hotel had a room that was clean and free so they let us check in at 7 AM! We dropped off our luggage, walked down a short block to the metro and headed downtown to get on the hop-on hop-off bus to tour the city (which by the way doesn't start until 9 AM and costs about $* - highly recommend although the other bus that looks very similar but is less popular looked less busy so you wouldn't wait in lines as much and does the same routes pretty much). A T-10 ticket from the metro station costs only $* and gives you 10 trips on the metro to where ever you need to go. The metro is extremely close to the hotel so makes getting anywhere easy. The hotel provided us with free internet (get username and password from the front desk) which was great. Has two English speaking TV channels (BBC and one cartoon station). The bathroom had shampoo, body wash, and lotion AND had a hairdryer with a diffuser (a must for a curly haired woman!) Comfy bed, nice shower, very modern details. Bar/restaurant is attached to the hotel. It looked nice but we never visited it. Only complaint would be the slow elevator but hey nothings perfect! We highly recommend this hotel.
