The measure of a good hotel is not only how good it is , but good it is when things don’t go well. The Riu has a great sky bar , lovely restaurants , attentive and efficient staff and a locket approach and attitude towards guests The rooms are lovely, modern and well appointed . However and somehow they managed to lose my laundry for 3 days and I was getting worried as I had to leave with the prospect of not having enough clothes to do the rest of my business trip . And here is where the measure of a good hotel came in , the customer service desk (Silvia and Maria) did not stop calling around and despite losing my laundry managed to find it with 1 hour to spare

my wife and i stayed here for three nights in October 2021. This is a beautiful hotel; it looks very new. The check in was easy and the staff very professional. the technology is excellent including the 'smart' elevators. the room was very large and incredibly nice. the bathroom was very modern with a wonderful walk in shower. the hotel has a great roof top bar with a spectacular view. the location is excellent with a metro stop a half block away. many of the attractions are within walking distance or an easy metro ride. As stated, this is a very nice upscale hotel with very professional staff. a gorgeous hotel. would highly recommend. as Americans, we needed covid 19 test to fly home. the hotel arranged for a tech to come to our room to administer the test and email us digital result. outstanding service.
