Very comfortable and relaxing and amazing views! First class hotel all the way.

Calgary, Canada

The room was very comfortable and very quiet. The views were amazing, the in-hotel restaurants and lounges are a great place to unwind. The check-in and check-out were very smooth. My only complaints are the cost of parking and the lack of signage for way-finding. The hotel is a bit of a maze. Overall, I would give it a 10 out of 10.

Blast -it's bloody good.

Melbourne, Australia

Somehow you want this fairy tale place to have some flaws showing but frankly I couldn't find one. Maybe the room was a bit on the small side but you can't quibble about that when you're looking at a three-window view that's as jaw dropping as the tariff. Talking about money, it's expensive but what do you expect? Our room was on the Gold level which meant a knockout lounge with food and an honour bar but again everything is dominated by the 5th floor views. Didn't really eat there but you kind of know it won't kill you. It's a great experience -go on, you owe yourself!
