As you know some hotels on our trip were your recommendations and a couple were our selection. As an aside, we think that your hotels were a better choice than ours!
The Upper House (Hong Kong) is a spectacular hotel. The rooms we had were excellent in every aspect. The service was outstanding and personalised. The beautiful rooms were enhanced by attentive and concerned staff that helped us at every turn. We were very appreciative of the personal touches you had arranged for us. We will and have recommended the Upper House to our friends as a great hotel to stay at. A real treat to stay in this gem!
The Rosewood in London is very impressive and thoroughly easy. The Rosewood’s staff member Fernando was at the airport to meet us and take care of our baggage and transfer to the hotel. The hotel itself is very stylish and well appointed. The rooms are spacious and want for nothing. Ours included a large shower and a big bath. Very luxurious after cold days walking around London. The staff were wonderful and friendly.
I am very pleased that we took your advise and stayed at Villa Maia (Lyon). It is exceptional in every way. The staff are exceptionally efficient and unobtrusive and its quiet (even though the hotel was near capacity) we felt at times like we were the only ones staying there. The concierge knows his town and restaurants and put us onto a number of great places to eat. He even managed to get us a table on Saturday night at the three hat Michelin restaurant gastronomique, Tetedoire. For both of us this was the highlight dining experience of the trip. The restaurant is literally across a paved courtyard/road from the hotel. The closeness of these two facilities makes for a easy and relaxing Lyon experience. The hotel is located at the top of a rocky outcrop and gives excellent extensive views of old and new Lyon. I can only imagine how spectacular it will be in Spring and Summer. We are already planning our next visit here.
Finally, what can you say about the Ritz in Paris that hasn’t already been said. We had high expectations and suffice to say the Ritz lived up to them. Our room was elegant and beautiful. The staff were efficient, friendly and willing. We had no issues with anything and when Shelley became ill they went out of their way to get her some medication. We bumped into Rod Stewart who was a guest! The hotel itself is conveniently located in Paris and there is easy access everywhere, as you might expect.
Thanks again for looking after us. You were wonderful and we’ll definitely be asking you to help us again in the coming months.
