Thanks to concierge Mary Anne before we even arrived and Rebecca during our stay, we experienced almost no stress as we negotiated reservations for lunch and dinner. The room was, of course, not comparable to a modern hotel, but provided the view, the comfort and the amenities of larger chain hotels while maintaining it's historic appeal.
We found the bar area disconcerting in it's public openness (you walk through the buffet/bar area to get from one side of the hotel to the other). It did not feel intimate at all. The restaurant, La Plazuela, was more separate, had good solid southwestern/Mexican food, but did not the feel of a special restaurant. We loved the Luminaria restaurant at the Inn at Loretto and were appalled by the Tabla restaurant at the St. Francis hotel.
So, we do recommend the Terazza level to those who can and are willing to spend more to ensure a quiet, restful, no stress vacation.
