Mario's International Spa and Hotel
Ranked #3 of 3 Hotels in Aurora
Reviewed January 11, 2011

I booked spa treatments and hotel rooms for a small group of girlfriends. The phone service at this hotel is terrible. However, once on site, it redeemed itself. I saw three of the rooms. All were clean, updated, comfortable and inviting. Room service was terribly slow, but they comp-ed the meal. Food is OK and overpriced. The spa is where this place shines. Just about every imaginable treatment is available from the capable and attentive staff. Winter decor is breathtaking.

This hotel is difficult to find. Signs as apparently required by city law are so small, they can't be read. Parking lot lights are out and they are "trying to fix them". My friends and I had a total of 3 rooms. The keys did not work in two of the three. Finally one of us changed rooms but the other one wrestled with the key the entire stay. The front desk staff did not know any of the local restaurants, had no printed list, had no maps. On site restaurant was expensive and had no breakfast. Hotel does not have complimentary breakfast and they didn't know where we could get breakfast nearby. Rooms were large and had a hot tub. Everything was clean. Temperature in the room was 80 when we arrived and there was no offer to show us how to operate the ventilation system. Website is not helpful as there are two hotels with nearly the same name.

My husband and I wanted to stay local for our anniversary so he suggested Mario's Spa & Hotel. They had a "stay-cation" package that we booked which gave us a room w/ king bed, 3-course dinner at The Cabin & continental breakfast the next morning for $169.

We made sure to book a room at their spa hotel and NOT the Aurora Inn. The room was lovely and my husband thought the bed/pillows were absolutely so comfortable. The carpet seemed new and the room was quite large (we had room #9). You do have to go up a couple of flights of stairs as this is an older building. That was not a problem for us but might be for some people.

Dinner at The Cabin was picture perfect. At this time of year they have lots of pine roping and twinkle lights. The food is always wonderful. On "The Program" menu you get a choice of soup/salad, a selection of maybe 6-8 entrees (one was the beef filet which my husband got. He loved it) and 4 desserts. You can order from their regular menu and then they give you a $25 credit for dinner. The Cabin is so romantic - we were near a fire place. Two thumbs way up on dinner (we have booked reservations for dinner on Christmas Eve!)

For breakfast the next morning, you could order a bagel or english muffin and coffee/cocoa or they would give you a $5 credit per person and you could order off the menu. That's what we did - their Eggs Benedict was superb!

This package also gives you 25% off spa services. DO NOT MISS "The Grotto" it is a private room with a rustic fireplace, built-in seating and your own hot tub. Book it so you and your partner can have it all to yourselves. It was so romantic! (The only suggestion I would make is that they need to have music playing in The Grotto as there was none when we were there.)

My girlfreind and I were looking for a relaxing and intimate atmosphere that was close to home. We have stayed at all the other hotels in the area but none can compare to the beauty and level of service we received here. We stayed on one of their packages that was VERY inexpensive. We had a room with jacuzzi, dinner, and breakfast for under $200. Every aspect of this place is amazing right down to courtesy, caring, and kindness of the 2 gentleman working there that day. They catered to our every need and made us feel like the only people in their full hotel. Dinner was amazing and truly was the most romantic restaurant I have ever been to. The server we had for dinner could have been a little more attentive but all in all it was great. We had side by side massages and pedicures that were absolutely amazing. If your looking for a little get a way, I would HIGHLY recommend this hotel.
