Walking into the Mount Nelson was an experience in and of itself.
The Mount Nelson exudes class once you come through its gates. Everything is elegant and first rate from the ground up through to the lobby. Then once we checked in it was really disappointing.
Our room was incredibly small (was an odd corner room) even though we chose a mid level room (almost all other rooms on the floor that we saw were much larger). Everything in the room seemed old and over used. There were numerous watermarks on the bathroom ceiling and hardly any room to get around the bed. The room just seemed incredibly awkward and ill-designed.
The restaurant was great, but the experience got tarnished as they seemed to have lost our reservation and we spent almost an hour waiting. Would not have been too big of a deal except that when we finally got into the restaurant it was half empty.
Perhaps they treat the uber rich and regulars a bit differently, but it would seem they treat the average joe, well... average.
But hey, the view was nice.
