We have vacationed for many years here over the Thanksgiving holiday. While expensive (and they have now added a $20 resort fee), the hotel is luxurious without feeling pretentious.
The grounds are simply gorgeous - and quite well maintained. The rooms have been remodeled - very tastefully, although the new lighting is less than adequate. The Shangri-La Fireplace rooms are wonderful - and worth the extra money if you can make the splurge.
Didn't do the spa services or golf this year - so can't comment. Town is an easy, nice walk. The fitness staff is great - and the resorts walks at 8 am are really exercise - first time I have ever experienced that at any hotel! The Herb garden is really beautifully landscaped lending a magical air to the grounds.
The resort shops are way too pricey - nice merchandise but not within the realm of reality-spending - especially with all of the sales in town!
Hotel is pet-friendly - and the Thanksgiving days seemed to bring a pet with each room - there were dogs everywhere - but by and large - all seems well behaved and tolerated by the other guests.
And valet parking is complimentary.
Can't wait to return!
