My husband and I visited the hotel and Callaway Gardens for just one night. The hotel was clearly the nicest in the area, which we were pleased about, but the hotel itself is way overdue for an update. The staff was very pleasant, and overall things were fine.
Walking throughout the grounds, the decor and furniture were clearly dated and worn. The pool was small and disappointing compared to pictures.
The spa was nice and professional, but just like the hotel, it seemed a bit overpriced and overvalued compared to other higher end hotels and spas I have stayed in, usually in much more desirable locations.
Restaurant and room service staff were again very nice, but the staff was not very knowledgeable regarding the menu (Did not know what a carafe of water was, nor what type of hot tea they had available, and was able to provide honey after she told me it was available.
None of this ruined my experience, but with an average hotel at $220 per night and $500 for only 1 1/2 hours of one spa treatments each for two, and the gardens albeit beautiful, were just not worth it.
Glad I have seen it and won't be back!
