This was a real treat for us - probably the best hotel we've ever stayed in. Staff is professional and amazingly good at their jobs. Seamless communication with all departments makes every decision so simple. It is expensive - BUT - our car was parked for us - and delivered to a convenient, easy to get to spot under the hotel. This was a real advantage as I have mobility issues and had not a simgle moment of worrying about navigating the hotel. The turn down service was unexpected and housekeeping staff did so many little things flawlessly.....we were grateful to be so kindly fussed over. The VERY BEST part of the hotel: the BED!! We had a king and never slept better in our lives. The boutique was a blast - the location (center city) excellent. There was no view to speak of but, because we required handicapped accommodations, we were necessarily placed on a low floor so that was a small compromise. All in all, the QE is a lovely choice for people with no budget restrictions.
