We are currently staying in this beautiful hotel! Arrived yesterday, went to the Rock & Soul Museum and Beale Street which are just a few short blocks away. Raced back to the hotel to watch the ducks march out of the fountain and back up to their room. This was a highlight!! What a production! Get there early if you want to take pictures or video, otherwise, you won't get a spot! We are in an Executive King, and it is lovely! Ate lunch yesterday at Carpaccio's. The servers were very friendly. The fried green tomatoes were not greasy, but, they tasted of old grease. The shrimp and grits was just okay. A little fishy, honestly. And no tasso sauce :( . The Reuben was also just okay, in my opinion (but I'm spoiled by the one we get at our local restaurant back home, to be fair). The fries were great!!!
I really don't have any complaints about this place except ...
I ordered room service for breakfast at around 6:05 a.m. The gentleman who took my order had a lackluster personality and just was not as friendly as I'm accustomed to. I just brushed it off initially, but when we received our food, we noticed the toast was not buttered, nor was there any butter on the side. In addition, the grits were not buttered despite the menu describing them as "buttered grits" (I just double-checked, and yes, they're called "buttered grits). The toast was cold, as were the eggs, bacon, and potatoes. I called the gentleman and asked for some butter and I told him that the toast and grits were not buttered and we didn't even get any butter on the side. He defensively said to me that they do not butter the toast and they do not butter the grits. I said I understand about the toast, but it would be nice to have butter on the side (they gave us plenty of jam and jelly). I also informed him that on the menu, it states that the grits are buttered (on the 2 eggs any style breakfast, which is what we ordered). He said he would send some up. It took 10 minutes to get the butter for the toast that was now ice cold. The up-side is that the butter came in the form of two little ducks on a plate! Super cute! The down-side is that the cute little butter ducks were ice cold and hard to spread on cold toast. There was something green all over my fried eggs (I'm guessing chopped parsley). I'd rather have had butter on my toast that green stuff on my eggs. Just saying! ;)
The room service is my only complaint. Cold eggs. Cold toast. Cold bacon. Cold potatoes. The grits were hot and the coffee was hot.
Other than the room service, this place is fantastic!
The parking manager, Jamiel, went out of his way to accommodate our small SUV and U-Haul trailer! I had contacted him in advance because I was concerned about us being able to park. He met me outside after we checked in, and he took us to an off-site lot and helped us out immensely! He then called for a driver in a town car to come pick us up! Incredible service, and incredible guy! Thanks, Jamiel!!
