I guess we were lucky to arrive at 3:15, so we could get our room right away. Not so for our friends, who had trouble to get to their rooms even after 3 pm ! Our room was quite spacious and well appointed, the bed was comfortable and toiletries were by L'Occitane , however, the next day we could not get room cleaned , even with the plea for "expeditious service" on our door and directly to the stuff! All our friends ( we all came in from out of state for the wedding) were complaining of mistakes in reservations, very delayed check ins, terrible rooms and poor service. Not to mention not working pool. The wedding quarters though were spectacular with mirrors and crystal chandeliers, beautiful floors and carpets. But air conditioners were blasting all night and we had to leave earlier as the stuff could not do anything for guests comfort. Not to mention terribly overdone filet minion! And, finally, I have to mention the location of the Hotel, which was perfect. A very short stroll to fabulous stretch of outside cafes and coffee shops, green streets and pretty stores. All in all it was a perfect Long Island weekend!
