I have never seen such a beautifully restored building, run by such a gaggle of dummies. The restoration of this hotel is really over-the-top. From custom designed wallpaper, fixtures, common areas, the aesthetic of the place is pure boutique. But make the mistake of hoping to be served in a timely manner, or with a modicum of politeness is something you can't expect here. On one night, they up-charged my whisky an extra $2.00 for ordering it neat! NEAT! When I highlighted the nuttiness to the bar manager, he argued with me, telling me "you specifically ordered it neat". Dumb-ness!
Also, when I booked the room, I reserved an upgraded "Maverick" room for an extra cost. As a repeating guest I asked if any upgrades may be available, they enthusiastically informed me that I had been upgraded to a Maverick room. Even though I had paid for the premium, they considered that to still be an upgrade. I could go on and on about their dumbness and poor service, but you get the gist. It's a remarkable property, with remarkably dumb attitudes and behaviours. Amateurs.
