Review of The Michelangelo Hotel


Pamela Brandt

Absolutely stunning hotel. We were there just two nights but it was a wonderful place to have jet lag. The breakfast was outstanding. It is attached to several malls so you do not have to go outside. It overlooks a square where we were able to watch a Christmas concert. Plenty of restaurants within just a few minutes. Airport pick-up and drop-off went smoothly. Staff were pleasant and helpful.
