This hotel is gorgeous and had the best service I have received in a long time. The restaurant was excellent as well. The location can't be beat. We stayed in 2 rooms, the Premium Preferred view and then the one bedroom suite. The one bedroom suite is a knock out if you can afford the upgrade. The Premium Preferred view is very nice, however being an old hotel our room had a half window, lower to the ground. Still very nice, but the one bedroom suite was the way to go. I did not see their least expensive guest room with a limited view, but the reservationist told me it was 200 sq feet. If you have stayed in historic hotels before, that size room (and bathroom) can feel very small. The hotel's decor is wonderful...extravagant Spanish with tiles, heavy fabrics, arches and beamed ceilings, fountains and a lot of beautiful art.
As beautiful as the hotel is, the service was what stood out the most. They knew who we were, anticipated what we needed, slipped notes under our door so as not to disturb us, and bent over backwards to provide everything they possibly could. It was very impressive - and appreciated.
The hotel is located near the Square, Bridge of Lions, St. George Street, Flagler and Lightner Museum. Both Flagler and Lightner were recommend for viewing their art and architecture, but we ran out of time. Everything is right out the door. The area is very clean, full of courtyards and lush vegetation, and good restaurants. Red Train tours are fun because you can hop on and off and hear information on the area. The Fountain of Youth is a beautiful property on the water worth visiting. People in period costumes, they fire cannons and old weapons on the hour, the grounds are beautful and peaceful and you can feed surprisingly gentle peacocks by hand.
I highly recommend this hotel and getaway spot for the weekend!!
