Why we like it

  • An elegant makeover has turned this into one of the most luxurious hotels in the area
  • The indoor/outdoor pool, with an upper-floor terrace, makes for a relaxing evening of aquatic fun
  • Comfort is everything, thanks to feather beds, slippers, and cozy robes
  • Despite the bustling location, you won’t hear anything at all while tucked into your room
  • Larger rooms and suites are massive, with more space than you’ll know what to do with

What you need to know

  • Breakfast is available for elite guests in the concierge lounge
  • The JW market is both a coffee shop, grab-n-go lounge, and a C-store
  • With plenty of floor space, lots of cardio and resistance machines, and piles of free weights, this hotel packs a great gym
