I do NOT mind paying top dollar when the product is so wonderful. Spent 3 nights here and loved this hotel. Service was top notch. Our room was amazing, with soaring ceilings with frescoes. Stunning. First class all the way.
Be forewarned: do not simply plug the hotel address into your GPS and expect to get there. The GPS throws in the towel and keeps telling you to stop the car and walk. Get on the phone with the hotel, and they will tell you the address to punch in, and then they send a bellman to literally walk ahead of your car, and lead you through the old town, to the hotel.
Tasteful, professional and a wonderful oasis to come home to after the insanity of crowded but wonderful Siena.
