6/10 Good

Two single beds put together
Everything was great, other than the bed. I was extremely disappointed to have two small beds pushed against each other as our bed, as there was an uncomfortable crack in the middle that would separate even further during the night. Great time, great city, lovely looking hotel, the bed situation was not what I expected from such an expensive hotel.
