I was invited along 90 other guests to attend a conference and dinner at this hotel a few weeks ago, with most people staying overnight.

The hotel managed to care for some glamour while renovating. So you'll get a smooth mixture between good old times, modern art and velvet curtains. The staff wraps you in velvet, too. I appreciated that very much. Food for banquet was OK, don't expect gourmet experience when having an event with more than 100 persons. Finally very price worthy and...
