ARRIVAL/CHECK-IN: My colleague and I arrived earlier than normal check-in time, so I didn’t expect the room to be ready for us. However, the staff was polite and offered to keep my luggage while we headed out to a lunch meeting. When we returned later that afternoon, the room was ready and I checked in with no issues. One thing that stood out was the AC Hotel and The Element hotel shared a lobby on the sixth floor, making the floor entrance an elite experience with a hallway leading to separated elevators.
GUEST QUARTERS: The room was everything I imagined from the photographs online — modern and clean with lots of light and open space. With recent updated innovations such as tap key entries, I felt safe and secure in my 14th-floor room. Each room included a full-sized desk, making it comfortable to work from my room. My favorite part of the room was the bathroom with full mirror lighting and an open glass shower with a rainfall head complemented with high-end shampoo and conditioner. The room also had a mini fridge to store leftovers plus plenty of space to hang clothing and store shoes and luggage.
SERVICES/AMENITIES: This inner-city hotel features a well-equipped gym located on the top floor; a refreshing rooftop pool overlooking the city with several shaded cabanas; fine dining done right with a glorious bar; and complimentary breakfast with a staffed crêpe bar, open until 10 a.m. But that’s not all! The hotel also offers a gorgeous rooftop known as Rosa Sky, open to the public, by night club owner Alan Roth and creative director Jasmine Viana. At Rosa Sky, I exited the elevator doors to a breathtaking view and into the life of a party with great cocktails and live DJs. This proved a fun way to end my workday without venturing far.
