My husband and I spent a weekend here for our wedding anniversary. Immediately upon our arrival, we were greeted outside, at our car door, by Liz. She welcomed us in and offered to help carry our bags into the building. While checking in, George (the General Manager) greeted us, valet parked our car and brought our bags to our beautiful, luxurious room. Our room was nice and warm, considering we were coming in from the cold, rainy weather. The staff placed yummy caramels, japanese crackers, and bottled water in our room awaiting our arrival. Very nice touch!
Our first night, my husband and I wanted to explore the nearby shops and restaurants. So many nice places to explore. Shops, restaurants, art galleries, and even the beach are all walking distance from our hotel. Another plus!
Due to some remodeling in the hotel and their onsite restaurant, we had to walk two blocks for our complimentary breakfast at Cantinetta Luca. Not a problem. We like to walk. But George and Liz made sure we knew they would drop us off and pick us up if we'd like. We decided to walk because the weather was nice and when we arrived another employee of the restaurant at L'Auberge greeted us at their sister restaurant Cantinetta Luca. Again, very accomodating and breakfast was delicious! It consisted of a plate of fresh fruit, freshly squeezed orange juice, two eggs any way you like them cooked, freshly brewed coffee, freshly baked croissants, toast, and delicious jam.
Our last nite with the hotel, we were surprised with a bottle of wine, dried berries, large slice of pumpkin cake, and a special note that wished us a Happy Anniversary. Thank you again George and Liz! They made our stay memorable.
One last note, it was storming the morning of our last day at the hotel but Liz kindly drove us to the restaurant for breakfast and picked us up as well. If you're looking for a place that takes customer service to a new level, this is your place! The staff we had contact with were second to none. We will definitely be back to stay again.
