My wife and I had a very nice room with a great view. They delivered a bottle of champagne to our room as a welcome gesture when we arrived. They also serve a better than average continental breakfast. Wine and cheese served daily from 4:30-6:30pm. Also good.
They claim that they searched around the world for the most comfortable bedding. They met this claim. I just wish they had applied the same principle to their bath towels. They were cheap and felt so on the skin.
I feel the place is a bit pricey based upon comparables. The staff is nice but I got the feeling that "it was just a job" for them.
Overall we had a nice time but we would look at other options prior to visiting again.
