A Diamond in a Haystack Dec 14, 2011
This hotel was a dive a decade ago. Hardly anybody knew that in the 1950's, it's a Grand Hotel with silver service provided (literally). Then, the main drag that passed through the hotel was diverted & it started the decline of this hotel which was once stayed by Queen Elizabeth 2 herself (twice), Prime Minister of England, Governor Generals of New Zealand. Then, it had an extreme makeover & now, it's a chic hotel at an affordable price. It was the finalists in many hospitality awards. Be prepared to be surprised by its southern hospitality where the comfort meals made u feel at home away from home. The hotel is worth exploring with major contemporary artworks being displayed prominently complemented by designer furniture by Frank Gehry, Philippe Starck, Tom Dixon. There's also a little archive displaying the letter of thanks by the Queen herself & also, artifacts from the hotel that r returned by local Museum. If u want to know a little secret, ask for Room 101, where the Queen used to stay:)
