My adult daughter took me to the Gideon (we've stayed there a couple times previously) for a Mother's Day package of one-night stay, Sunday brunch, and mineral bath.
The room was pretty nice, though there was a spot on the wall where they'd spackled and never painted, which surprised me, given their extensive renovations in recent years. We'd been booked months in advance and would have expected a top-notch room. There were a couple rooms nearby with loud, young children. I am not a crank about this stuff, but I sure do appreciate it when hotels put families with young children all together in a hotel. They were still loud at 11:30 p.m.
The brunch was delicious and quite extensive. At the end, though, we were presented with a bill. My daughter explained that she had purchased an inclusive package (and the price she'd paid certainly reflected it-- it was considerably more than just a room charge,) and there was a great deal of confusion for some reason. They did the right thing and did not charge us, and we left a good tip for the excellent service. The front desk people were also helpful and courteous.
The Roosevelt Baths were truly wonderful. They have perfected their facilities and their staff (unlike last time) were attentive and mature. Overall, we had a very nice time in the beautiful surroundings of this fine old hotel.
