My husband and I stayed at the Gunter Hotel for 3 nights in June, 2006. This is a lovely restored hotel that has recently been through a refurbishment or remodel. Our room had all new decor, paint and linens. It was very attractive and comfortable, even though the room was smaller than a normal Sheraton might be. The bathroom and closet were also smaller than normal. However, we didn't care, since it was charming. We had a queen sized bed, which worried me at first, because we have a king size at home. However the bed was so comfortable that it was just fine.
All of the employees were very friendly and seemed to all know our names. I even asked one of the men on the second day, as he greeted me "Good Day, Mrs.____" if he learned everyone's names. He said he tries to do that. It seemed like all of them did. The valet parking was $22 a day with in and out priveleges. I thought that was steep and had read that there was a parking lot behind the hotel charging $6 a day. When we checked into it, it turned out that you have to pay that each time you take your car out. In addition, it looked a bit creepy around that lot and my husband didn't want to leave the car there. Since we were planning to take the car out a few times each day, it wasn't worth changing.
The only thing we didn't like about the room was that they had a comforter on the bed that weighed ALOT! Both my husband and I felt like we had those radiation shield aprons from the dentist lying top of us when we had the comforter on the bed. It was a nice color and new, but way too heavy!
The bakery in the hotel has coffee and lots of pastries. We went there quit often. The restaurant has a nice lunch buffet for about $10.
