While I've stayed in various hotels, this one beats them all for two reasons: The staff, from top to bottom, were all unbelieavably friendly & helpful. There's nice and there's friendly. This staff deserves 5 *****! The "cherry on top", if you will, was the food. The Desmond has 3 restaurants within the hotel, one being a pub, one being Simpson's Grill and the other 3rd is for those who prefer fine dining (The Scrimshaw). We chose to eat at Simpson's Grill, which was so amazingly delicious, I went back the 2nd day (both breakfast & dinner). Kudos to the che(s) because I was wowed by my meals each time. I've eaten in many fine dining establishments and my meals was equal to them all. My room had 2 queen beds and I will have to admit that the carpet did have an old stain in it, but the room was clean, which is what counts. Perhaps I should take 1 star away for the stain but I just don't feel they deserve it. I would recommend this room without hesitation!!!
