Sure, this is a famous landmark hotel and a hangout for A-list celebrities - which I am not - but that didn't stop the hotel from taking excellent care of me and making my stay exceptional in every way. From the advance call from the concierge, the excellent food, the way they dealt with an event in the hotel to every staff person I came in contact with being friendly, helpful and fun. It just doesn't get any better. The rooms are classically furnished for comfort, not to impress. The place is private and appropriate. The pool is small, but very nice. I've had great meals there - especially the hamburger. I live this place and stay here every opportunity I have - THEY GET IT!
