A renovated building often doesn’t work well as a hotel, however the Distinction is definitely not one of those! The rooms are exceptionally well appointed and generous - ours had a lounge suite, double sinks in the bathroom, a very cool electrically operated shower and large bath. The restaurant and and bar were chic and intimate with good soundproofing - has a real lounge feel. Great staff at checkin and in the bar. Thanks Distinction for a great visit - we’ll be back.
