This is one of the most elegant hotels I've stayed at for many years. The lobby is classy and has wonderful music piping in that is low-key and very pleasing. If I were to use a word to define this lovely place ...I would use the term attention to detail. Many comfortable seating arrangements in the lobby that are conducive to sitting and chatting, while allowing for private conversations. There are a few computer stations for visitors use that do nothing to detract from the atmosphere of gracious living. All the people on staff are top notch. When the Maitre D is able to remember the baby's name...that is impressive. The bathrooms down in the lobby are very beautifully decorated. Food is excellent and breakfast starts with a complimentary yogurt smoothie that changes daily. What a nice touch. Adjoining the Lobby is an Illy bar that serves wonderful capucchino and espresso as well as croissants and such. The proximity of lots of terrific shops and restaurants makes for easy walking expeditions to explore the area. My daughter and I witnessed a large group of high school age young people in several locations including the lobby and the elevators. Some groups on the elevator were somewhat loud, but were polite and respectful when adults chose to ride with them. My daughter got on an elevator with her baby to bring him back to her room...the kids had been chatting and immediately hushed each other so as not to wake the baby. It was nice to see a large group of young people learning to comport themselves as adults. Kudos to the hotel for encouraging their presence!
