DSC_0426Something you don’t see right away is also built into the room: the round-the-clock butler service.  In the course of my four-day visit, I met three attentive and capable butlers, who all seemed to know what I wanted well before I knew myself.  Nothing seemed to be too much of a request, from getting walking directions to a meeting, to recommendations on a restaurant.  The butler was as much concierge and trusted advisor as manservant.

The bedroom was almost as big and equally Art Deco.  It was also one of the few bedrooms that still had a separate hand-washing sink in addition to far more lavish facilities in the bath area.  The bed itself was very comfortable, and I woke up feeling refreshed in the morning, having dreamt of what the butler would be bringing for breakfast.

The room had several huge closets, and one contained two Burberry raincoats for use during my stay –a thoughtful touch, although I enjoyed sunny skies and warm temperatures while I was there.  There was also a large dressing table that could have served as a spare desk.

In the bathroom, there were dual sinks, a separate soaking tub, an oversized walk-in shower, and ample amounts of counter space for my toiletries.  It also had a Toto Washlet toilet operated via a wall-mounted remote control.

Most importantly, at least for me, the bathroom had an elegant lacquered two-drawer cabinet  measuring 9.5”by 9.5”x 3.75”(24 x 24 x 9.5 centimeters) that demonstrated that the designer had given considerable thought on how to organize smaller items near the sink.  I liked it so much that I purchased one prior to departure for £75, roughly $128.

A large terrace accessible from the bedroom overlooked the hotel’s main entrance and had comfortable chairs and a table, suitable for enjoying breakfast if one so desired.
