We stayed here for a night during our honeymoon. After arriving, we were sad we had only booked one night.
Our room was gorgeous, spacious, and the shower was to die for! We also had an amazing view of the city (see pictures). When we checked in, we were walked to our room by the front desk clerk to make sure it was acceptable. I really liked this. Made me feel special. :)
The funny part was, there were two twin beds about a foot apart. For some reason it had that request on our reservation, no fault to the hotel. They quickly pushed them together for us, and I have to say, I'm now considering this arrangement for our own home! :) I felt like I got to sleep with my husband, but got my own set of blankets,and didn't feel him flopping around in the night!
The front desk called up after we had time to settle to make sure everything was okay.
The breakfast buffet was good. I recommend trying the hotel's own line of jams, I fell in love with them. And there was champagne! The only downside was that I felt a bit under dressed in my sweats, as most diners were business men and in suits. You might want to throw on a pair of jeans before heading down, but there is no technical dress code. So wear what you want!
The grounds outside the hotel are gorgeous as well. We are hoping to go back and visit again sometime!
