Though the hotel openly boasts of antiques and grandeur throughout, some of the hotels furnishings are less impressive than others and not all items are as genuine as it at first appears. To many this comes as a disappointment. However, the hotel is undoubtedly sumptuous despite the occasional fake flower or reproduction chest. It is, after all, important to remember that the hotel is NOT in an authentic palace, it is modern, and much of the comfort it offers is due to that fact.
