2 separate stays in this hotel during the summer months. Interestingly a few differences betweeen experiences. The first - a 4 night stay in an 'entry level' room - great room with plenty of storage on the 10th floor facing Howe Street. The second - a 4 night stay also....the same category of room but, smaller and with barely enough storage (2 small drawers + robes) for 1 person, never might 2 for 4 nights! This time on the 4th floor facing Georgia.
After much negotiation on days 1 and 2, moved to a better room for 2 nights....followed by a request to move back into the original (smaller room) for 1 night. After some strong protest, 2nd room was allocated for final night.
The point of the above is.....when allocating rooms...whichever category consideration should be given to ....number of nights customers are staying with 'better' rooms allocated to longer stays and better positions ie floors.
Some of the staff were most helpful, at the front desk....but not all! One gentleman in particular, gave me the impression I should go away and not have him bother with this request - in fact he didn't bother to record the request on the system, despite saying he would!! So some inconsistent service issues here....
Having said all that, this is indeed a lovely hotel - splendid central location. Concierges were most helpful...as, of course you'd expect of a hotel of this calibre. The hotel offer a free limo service within the downtown areas.....The Bentley, complete with James (Jim) the chauffeur was a delight
The outside terrace area (4th floor) for drinks and snacks also a very pleasant space to enjoy during the summer months.
All in all a good stay....just be sure to check out your room allocation on arrival!
