The room was the smallest of all the art series rooms I have stayed in. The bedside table was buckled. There was no drinks in the fridge. No wine, snacks or Swiss’s multivitamins like the art series hotels used to provide before. There wasn’t even a jug for cold water in the room. In saying this, the staff were exceptional. Always polite and easy to deal with
