The Mayfair is one of those very special hotels that has no equal when it comes to grace and beauty. Unfortunately it can't seem to pull off a satisfactory visitor experience. I really wanted to see this hotel pull off a perfect stay. Instead from the moment we arrived, they struggled to get it right. First impression is an entrance that is difficult to find and a valet service that charges $28 per day despite the $5 parking garage across the street. The lobby interior was empty every time we were in it - feeling eerily as if we were the only guests. The first room we were assigned was lovely and very clean - until I took off my shoes and realized that the tile floors were wet -as in covered with water. Had no idea where it was coming from but it looked as if a housekeeper had used a waterlogged mop liberally and the room was so damp it did not dry.One could have slid across the entire floor.
The man at the front desk was gracious and assigned us room number 2 - this one had dry floors, was clean and smelled like a dead animal had decomposed in the closet for the past week.
Room number 3 stunk of air freshner but the floor was dry so after more than 30 minutes of back and forth check-in we thanked our lucky stars that the room was clean and decent. We put the ac into overdrive and the smell went away by the time we returned from dinner.
The fire alarm roused us in the am - we tramped down the stairs and to the street only to find that the pressure cleaners on the roof had tripped a sensor. I really wanted to write a great review of this stunningly beautiful and unique hotel but it just wasn't in the cards.
