  1. Hello Annie

    No, I don’t think it’s quite finished yet. We were actually provided with this information many months ago, and were told that the opening was delayed to the date which we scheduled the post for. However, I can only assume that they’ve encountered further delays as the website is now saying it will open in 2009.


  2. This seems so lush and lux… it’s lovely.
    But I guess I have to work my butt off in order to afford a room… but yea, a girl can dream. :)


    Great review!
