From the moment you arrive at CR you feel welcome, and part of the good fun, when the doorman strikes the gong and announces your arrival to the applause of the staff in the lobby. This is a lovely hotel in a very good location. Our room was large and comfortable with all the usual amenities. We did not have a water view, but that did not matter. The service was top notch in every part of the hotel and we enjoyed our meals at the Banting where everything was prepared and served exactly as ordered. There are lots of modest restaurants in the immediate area and there is a comfortable feel as one walks around. The Waterfront is a quick and inexpensive taxi ride if you do not want to walk.
Having read other reviews of this hotel, I can only say that I do not understand the bad or unpleasant experiences that other people had. The mark of a good hotel is that they are able to accommodate the needs of a wide variety of people. In our case, we asked ahead of time for a number of things and they were waiting in the room when we arrived. After a long flight it was nice to be undisturbed with our unusual sleep pattern and also that housekeeping was happy to come and clean the room whenever we were ready for them. The doormen and other staff made a point of always enquiring if we needed anything, if we had enjoyed our day, if we would like some suggestions for restaurants, etc -- all done in a friendly and natural way so that it was not intrusive. In addition, to have this kind of service at this price in a world famous city is fantastic. We spent 4 restful nights before starting a combination business and pleasure trip and it was a great way to begin our travels. We will stay here again.
