Just stopped in to walk around the historic hotel. Beautiful inside and out. Gorgeous pool area. Be sure to go down to the Hall of History. Great information about the hotel, island and characters in the 1900's. We joined a tour led by an elderly employee who gave added color with his oral history. Well worth a half hour.

The difference between a super bowl winning NFL team and one that is looking for a new coach is attention to detail. This place knows attention to detail! Minor point, but they know how to do poached eggs properly for the eggs benedict. Room service was fast! The people have such a wonderful attitude! Genuine smiles! In particular, Bobby at... More

I was pleased with both rooms and actually enjoyed our stay; however, one elevator was a problem. At usual checkout time (2/21/14) around 11, the elevator on floor 3 where part of my family stayed was NOT allowing myself and several other departing guests to go DOWN. A full elevator would ascend and stop on floor 3, and then continue... More

Thank you for letting us know about the elevator issue. We are so sorry that you missed your daughter's finish during her first half marathon. Please know that there are also stairs located on either side of the hotel which can be used in case of an emergency. For future reference, about a mile into that race the route makes... More

Our suite was lovely and very comfortable. The staff was friendly and they welcomed our little dog too. The Christmas brunch was incredibly wonderful and they handled the crowd perfectly. I am puzzled and disappointed to say that the food (shrimp gumbo! Cuban sandwich) from room service was inedible! I was shocked. Must have chefs come in for the special... More
