At one time this was obviously a glorious hotel. And, I have no doubt that a lot of money and time has been spent in renovating it. However, it still needs some work.
We stayed at the Mayfair Hotel and Spa one night before our cruise. The location was quite nice -- just across the street from shopping and restaurants. The lobby had a nice Spanish feel to it and the restaurant off of the lobby looked inviting. The first indication that the renovation wasn't complete is when we went into the elevator. It was extremely difficult to read the number to push to get to our floor (worn out numbers). The elevator appears to be a forgotten item on the list of upgrades.
I thought that the room, although an odd configuration, was lovely. My husband did not care for it at all and felt the hotel did not live up to the write-ups. While I find it a bit difficult to rate a hotel that my husband found very poor and I found acceptable, the best I could do was rate it a "3".
As a 3 star rated hotel, it would be marvelous for pre-cruise stays -- especially with the easy accessibility to shopping and dining. While I typically have a good memory, our breakfast at the hotel remains a blank in my mind. This probably means that it was not memorable -- neither wonderful or terrible.
Bottom line -- do not over rate this hotel and people will be more than satisfied.
