My husband and I just stayed here on our honeymoon...I am in hospitality management (for another brand)- and my now husband insisted on surprising me with our destination. I was a little nervous as I can be somewhat of a travel-control freak (it is my business!)- he nailed it!
The hotel was very nice...I could go on and on about the historical significance of the building, etc- it was beautiful and quality (they don't build like this anymore...)- and modern. The renovations of this building were done so well. They maintained and restored while providing modern luxury. I loved it!
I typically judge on cleanliness and friendliness- regardless of how nice the building is. The staff at the front desk, valet services, housekeeping- wonderful. I was acknowledged EVERY time I walked by anyone in uniform/on duty- with a smile.
Our room was clean- our housekeeper asked us about any needs, wants, etc... I inspect my room when I stay at a hotel...I check for things liked bed bug evidence on the mattress, etc...Everything was clean. I was VERY impressed.
My only issue wasn't with our service...there was a waitress at the bar one of the nights we stayed who was chatting with some patrons at the end of the bar who were apparently regulars (she knew their drinks,etc.)...She was saying some pretty unflattering things about one of her managers...I just felt like it was very disappointing- everyone else on staff was SO professional...She fell short- but I don't the hotel responsible for the restaurant's employee- but I thought I should say something...
We will definitely come back- hopefully when it is warmer so we can enjoy the shopping district more fully!
