arrived to a friendly greeting by the bellman, valet service for the car is FREE, proceeded to the front desk for same, friendly treatment. Was upgraded to a larger room quickly,efficiently. Hotel is decorated in a classic art deco style...gorgeous!! Nice touch of fresh fruit in the lobby all day as well as coffee/tea set up every morning until around ten a.m. Nice touch also of a treat every day when you come back to your room (chocolate, or yummy cookies) that go well with the delicious keurig coffemaker in each room. Bathrooms have deep soaker tub and granite countertops. Great location to Country club plaza with shops and restaurants. The hotel restaurant and bar is a lovely,romantic place to eat and listen to quiet jazzy/bluesy music (live) every evening. We would stay here again anytime. Thanks to all the wonderful staff for being so friendly.
