Very underimpressed! Extremely dated across the board, furniture tattered, no Wi-Fi anywhere, front desk understaffed and not hospitable. Staff said Wi-Fi doesn’t work in rooms and tried to tell us not to bring our cooler into the hotel.

I have stayed in this hotel before and wanted to see how it was now under new operators. Unfortunately, it still needs more work. The lobby area is fabulous as if you were walking back in time. Unfortunately, that was as far as the pleasant experience went. We were placed in a room on the fourth floor but that weekend the elevators were out of service (they seem to only have one!!). We were given a room that faces the Plaza. Big mistake because there will be street noise no matter what day of the week it is. The room was quite bare and looked old and cheap. The A/C controls were not working so you either turned on the air conditioner at full blast and freeze, or you turned it off until it got too warm. The furnishing (all from Ikea) looked flimsy, the fridge had a lot of rusty areas, and the decor was nonexistent. If this was one of their refurbished rooms (as I think they told us) I don't want to see one of their old ones.

From the moment you walk in, Melia surprises you with a chic environment. The piano at the lobby and the white decor make for a chic ambiance. We enjoyed our visit and couldn’t recommend it enough for a fashionable encounter or production.

I recently got married there and I only can say it was better than a fairy tale. The place looks amazing, the service was A+ and my room was incredible. I had the time of my life and for sure I’m ready to go back for Christmas.
