But the rooms at the hotel are something but eclectic. Refined colour palates and luxurious linens make for cozy bedrooms that are difficult to leave every single morning.

But regardless of all of that comfort, my favourite issue has to be the pantry on the upper floor exactly where anytime the mood strikes you can head up to locate individually portioned ice creams and jars of sugary sweets to satisfy your midnight cravings.
