We stayed at the Vanderbilt for 2 nights with our 2 toddler sons (2 & 5 yrs) and I must say from the moment we walked out of the car to the time we left, we received nothing but 5 star service. Everyone was so friendly and helpful - from the valet, to checking in, to ordering room service to having breakfast in their garden room. As a small boutique hotel, you really felt welcomed and they were so accommodating to our children which we really appreciated.
The room was fabulous. It was clean, spacious and had great ceilings. Bathrooms had double sinks which was a definitely bonus. We loved having a large mini fridge, complimentary k-cups for the Keurig and microwave too. My kids loved swimming in the indoor pool. The continental breakfast was perfect - croissants were yummy!
The only thing I would say that the hotel might need improve on is their spa services. It's not a full service spa where therapists are there all the time etc...it's more on a need to need basis. My husband got a deep tissue massage and quickly realized that this might have been his therapist's first time giving one as he felt she did not quite know what she was doing. Unfortunately, my husband always gets deep tissue so he really knows what it should feel like.
Overall, we loved the hotel, the staff and rooms. We could walk down to Thames street as well as up to Bellevue Avenue. My kids felt welcomed and so did we. We will definitely be back!
