Hands down one of the most luxurious and cutting-edge stays I have had at an executive/business hotel. From the building lobby, you travel to the hotel reception on the 18th floor. A second, separate elevator bank then whisks you to your floor (and possibly others for no apparent reason, you must often press your floor button several times). Room was Park Avenue posh, with contemporary decor, extensive use of marble and wood, beautiful glass lamps and vases, home theatre, bath fit for Caracalla. Vertical glass wall panels separate the room from the outer, tilted glass and steel frame of the building. Most every detail, down to shaving and dental kit, even electrical outlet in the room safe, was thoughtfully provided. For the uninitiated, the extensive and not quite obvious, control panels leave something to be desired. Much like navigating the controls of a luxury car for the first time, there is a steep learning curve, which should be better explained upon arrival to the room and in a manual. There are controls for curtains, sheers, dimmers, too numerous to count recessed lights, bed lamps, televisions, speaker volume in the bathroom for the bedroom television, bathtub television, bathtub itself, ventilation controls, home theatre, even under cabinet lights in the bathroom. Unfortunately, ventilation and lighting controls are the most vital, and most confusing of the bunch, and I never quite mastered them. I overheard other guests in the elevator with similar difficulties operating bath and shower controls. Overall, hotel management attempts to go above and beyond expectations in delivering an exceptional experience, and succeeds. If you have business at the adjacent ADNEC or nearby embassies, look no further. There is not much in the immediate area in the way of restaurants, shopping, or entertainment; however, taxis are plentiful and the hotel restaurant and ground floor snack facilities are excellent.
