The room was beautifully appointed: microwave, refrigerator, coffee maker, shower and separate tub, plenty of storage and seating, windows that can be opened, and Aveda toiletries. All the subtle little nods to O. Henry were tasteful and sweet, like the engraved titles of stories in the elevators and the little book of stories left on the bedside table. The onsite restaurant, Green Valley Grill, gets rave reviews, but we only sampled desserts and wine in the bar, which ended up being fabulous. The service was excellent. The lobby, courtyard, and grounds were absolutely gorgeous and warm and welcoming.
The little touches were adorable and thoughtful and lovely, and for this reason, I'm sure, this property has charmed its way into the hearts of everyone in the area. The lobby and common areas were terribly busy at check-in Friday and all day Saturday for multiple events (a wedding ceremony and reception and a separate celebration). If you weren't part of the party, it felt very easy to be shuffled to the side and overlooked by staff because, while adequate for the number of guests staying at the hotel, the common areas aren't very large at all. This intimacy was amazing and well-appreciated returning to the hotel after the parties dissipated, but in the fray, it was a little discouraging. The facilities are so special and beautiful, though, that you can't really blame people for wanting to celebrate something--anything!--here. There're very few places I would rather be myself.
