“Excellent!!! Everything was perfect. Eduardo was super helpful and professional, he catered to all of my needs and answered my many phone calls from my very first visit until my party ended. The concierge staff was extremely helpful and courteous also. The space was beautiful, clean and spacious. All of my guests commented on the gorgeous view and how lovely it was. Thanks to Eduardo and the rooftop lounge my party was a huge success. I would not hesitate to recommend The Rooftop Lounge to family and friends and can’t wait to have another function so I can book it myself. THANK YOU!!”
