Amazing. Loved the decor. Loved the look/feel of the hotel. Staff was great. Hotel was clean. Great location. Rooms were BIG - well worth the cost. We used the hotel tonight app, and booked this hotel same day we checked in. Amazing.
2 reasons why this didnt get a 5 star rating from me:
1. We booked spa treatments for Saturday at 5PM.. yes a cold front was coming thru and yes we knew it was a bit windy and that it was getting cool out. The Betsy I'm guessing doesnt have a back up spa option for inclement weather. With that said, we laid half naked on the roof, with 25 mile an hour winds, and dropping temps while 2 massage therapists gave us what was supposed to be a deep tissue massage, with their cold hands and sniffling noses for one hour. Enjoyable and relaxing - no. Sadly, this was not a relaxing, or romantic spa treatment, that my husband and I were so hoping for for our anniversary.
2 - We were in room 105. What was great about this room was that it was furthest from the lobby - which housed BLT and at night it was pretty noisy so it was nice to be so far from there. Downfall of this - was a staff door right outside our room - starting at the crack of dawn (it was still dark out) - they were going in and out of this door, and you could hear it slam in our room, which kept us up all night/morning.
Again would these things deter us from staying here again - no way. We loved it - just really disappointed in the spa, so be mindful of that when booking! (check your weather :) Figures when we are there, we get the bad weather! :)
