This made the stay truly memorable for us and we will have no hesitation in recommending to other families. Special call out goes to Nicholas at the front desk who helped us with parking... More

Fantastic service received from the restaurant staff and F&B department. I need to highlight the service that I and my group received from Thomas. He went out of his way to ensure that we were cared for in every way during our four night stay at the President. Thank you
