Where to start? There were so many amazing little details that added up to such a memorable experience!
Check-in was a breeze with Molly and Jacqueline. They were both so warm and friendly and quick to help in anyway they could.
When we got to our room (view of the lake and the iceskating rink) Jacqueline, the concierge, had the TV on playing spa like music and screen of a fireplace. There were flowers and a sweet personalized note from her as well.
The weather was freezing at the time of our stay so while we could have walked to everything we opted to take advantage of car service and am I glad we did! Matt and Paul made us look like rockstars pulling up in an Escalade. I seriously couldnt believe this service was free. Not only do they drop you off but you can call and they will come back and get you. They were super friendly and knowledgeable about the area and most importantly safe drivers!
We had breakfast in the resturant upstaris with an amazing view of the lake and the best eggs benedict Ive ever had (they make it on a crossant not an english muffin...say what!?)
The room and hotel were great, newly renovated so everything was super clean and well appointed but it was the staff that made this trip one to remember! Needless to say I give this five stars and two thumbs up!! Thank you to Molly, Jacqueline, Paul and Matt:) We will be back!
