Is it possible to to be this outstanding and still claim that it is a good value? I've stayed at this hotel once before so my great experience this time around was not a big surprise. That said, it is always nice to be warmly welcomed upon arrival by the valet staff and at the reception desk. The subtle touch of coming around the desk to be given my room key is also a very nice welcoming gesture. My room was very spacious, had several outlet for charging my phone and computer and had a functioning iron and ironing board to allow me to quickly iron my shirt before dinner, too. The bar service and restaurants at this hotel are all terrific. The workout room is one of the best I've ever been in with all the equipment one could ever want to use. Friendly staff welcomes you with a towel, headphones and cup of ice water and did everything but work out for me.
This is a five star hotel that does NOT rest on past accolades.
