“Can I get you something to drink? Wine? Water? I’ll get you some sparkling wine, shall I?”. With just a few simple words, the tone for my stay at COMO The Treasury hotel had been set. I didn’t even get the chance to answer my friendly valet before he ducked back off to fetch me a welcome glass of sparkling, while I reclined in one of the lobby’s plush grey lounges to sign my check-in papers.
They say not to judge a book by its cover – or a hotel by its lobby and check-in experience – but from these few first impressions, I knew this stay was going to be something special.
