I was met very graciously by the door man, who showed me where to park my car until the valet picked it up. Check in was smooth and I was shown to my room by a courteous man who thoroughly explained everything in the room. The room was incredible--very nicely appointed--and the bathroom was even better. Very nicely done and in a nice touch, all the toiletries were high quality and complete, with even relaxation bath salts. The door man suggested areas to visit that were accurate. Upon returning to the hotel in the evening, the bed was turned down and the room prepared for sleeping--very nice gesture. The sleep was wonderful.
Breakfast the next day was nicely done--some meats and cheeses, bread, some sweets, all obviously high quality and set out very well. The homemade chef's cake was incredible! The server offered eggs and omelets and they were cooked well; and the server was friendly and offered a lot of insight to the local culture. On checkout, the manager was present and very gracious--she offered bottled water for the trip, again a very nice touch.
I gave one feedback to the manager about the wireless coverage in my room--it didn't quite reach. The man showing me the room said if the wireless didn't reach my device he would coordinate for a wireless router to be placed in the room. It wasn't necessary because I brought my own Apple router and plugged it into the ethernet port, but it was nice to know they would take care of it if required. The manager also said she would take action on the wireless coverage situation since they had just upgraded the system. Given the offer of the router, I would not say this feedback is negative in any way and you are assured to have wireless internet by whatever means. The connection was speedy enough too.
I worked out in the gym, which is in a cellar of the hotel. It has a neat feel to it--it has been designed very well! Some cardio equipment, a television with remote for watching during a work out, a spa, jacuzzi, and very cool, a dipping pool for cooling off. Offered massage as well though I didn't take advantage of it.
Over all, I can't say enough good things about this hotel. It is in a great location for walking in the old town and exceeded my expectations in all other ways. I hope someday to return!
