I had heard if you were not dressed well you would not be treated well at this hotel but I arrived after traveling by car for hours in simple jeans and a black top and was greeted by the valet with all the friendliness in the world. He was so helpful and nice as was the lady at the front desk who offered my teenage daughter cookies. The room was wonderful, elegant, comfy just like being at home and with lovely amenities.
Room service was splendid; the gentleman who brought our dinner both nights (we ate in as my daughter was ill) was such a nice man, very pleasant with a lovely smile, offering his services very happily and willingly. Like the wonderful valet I can’t express how much his pleasant demeanor and friendliness meant to me after the long drive and having to deal with my daughter suddenly taking ill.
I must add that there is a $35 per night valet charge as well as a 48 hour cancellation policy, the latter which I forgot when I first made reservations as most hotels require 24 hours advance notice, however they really went out of their way to work with me so I could simply reschedule and not be charged for a day. All in all everyone at the hotel was most helpful and I would go back in a heartbeat regardless of the price, it’s well worth it. The location was superb, the beds, the room so comfortable, the view wonderful, the entire experience was perfect for both myself and my daughter despite not feeling well during the visit.
