We're locals and just did a quick overnight to celebrate our anniversary (I know about this hotel because my company does their annual conference here and I don't get to stay because I live locally!). Got a good off-season rate for a Camelback view room, although once taxes and fees were added, the price climbed 50%. The room was very comfortable, spacious, and nicely decorated. Lots of electrical outlets, which is really nice to see - too many hotels (particularly for business travelers) don't have enough outlets or they're not accessible. The bathroom was very big, with a walk-in dual-head shower, soaking tub, separate toilet room, and bathrobes. The bed was absolutely heavenly. Our room was situated far from the entrance, which resulted in a bit of a hike to and from the valet, but it was great to have such a quiet location and a beautiful view of the mountain.
Service was excellent with very friendly, welcoming staff who were always ready to help. We wanted to have dinner at the hotel, but my husband wasn't too excited about the menus; however, they more than willingly made him a pizza off the room service menu while I enjoyed the tapas (we ate at MBar, which also serves the Prado menu). We bought the French caramel truffles at the Julia Baker shop - very yummy.
It was a great stay and I would have loved a couple more nights. There was only one complaint: the shower drain was much too inadequate for the amount of water even one shower head put out. Within a couple minutes there was at least an inch of standing water and it went all the way to the small wood stool by the shower entrance and almost onto the bathroom floor (it would have flooded the bathroom, except for the incline and tiling along the shower floor boundary). After washing my hair, all the soap ended up on the other side of the shower, making the standing water all scummy - yuck. It took at least 30 min to drain out too. Other than that, a terrific place.
