My boyfriend and I rely on trip advisor for every hotel we book, and this was a VERY EASY choice from the moment we saw the spa king room! Not only is the hotel one of our favorites, the price you can't go wrong! The only downside is the $40 daily car fee, but these days that is the norm.
Some of the many reasons why we LOVED this hotel
We LOVE boutique hotels (updated, clean, great service, unique amenities...pretty much, "the whole package"!!!)...and this had it ALL. From the moment we stepped out of our car, the bell hop was GENUIENLY the most attentive I've ever seen, not ones of those pretentious ones holding the door just looking for a hefty tip. Upon check in, the receptionist, I believe her name was Naeem, was more accommodating than ever, even asking us if we would like her to check out the room prior us to going there (We wanted the high floor with a view)...and couldn't have been happier, we only wish we could thank her in person! They have a daily wine hour with the most incredible truffle oil and citrus popcorn..and I hate popcorn until now! We met some great folks and really got to know the area from the superb clientele and level of service they provide. We did have martini's and apps at the associated bar, and although they were incredible, the bartender was very non-interested, but still makes a good drink.
The room - we stayed in the spa king, and that is a must! I'm a big spa tub girl and nice bathroom and this was the king of kings! Nice touch with the animal print robes, but I think that is in every room. If you have a significant other of just want to pamper yourself, splurge for the spa king, the separate whirlpool and shower is worth every penny!!!!
Level of treatment here is unsurpassed! My boyfriend and I were chatting in the elevator how excited we were to see our room after how accommodating and genuine and helpful the staff has been thus far, not to mention the BEAUTY of the hotel itself, and another gentleman in the elevator commented on how amazing this hotel is that his wife called for a makeup mirror and were to deliver it immediately and if it wasn't what she liked they would go out and buy her a better one! How can you beat that!
Location - AMAZING! step outside and you are in the perfect vicinity to it all! I'm more of a shopper and great bars while my boyfriend loves culture and here it was all within blocks! We walked everywhere and had a blast.
Great hotel, great location, only wish there were more like this!
