As a seasoned traveller on the road almost 200 days per year, I've had the pleasure of staying at some remarkable properties. I've also come to appreciate that as important as the visual appeal and surroundings of a hotel are, the simple fact is that the staff make or break your stay. The Nines is a hotel I often visit and am happy to be recognized as I arrive at the valet and am pleasently greeted from there right through to check in and concierge desk. They make a point of "welcoming you back" and genuinely do all they can to ensure your stay is what you expect if not more...in a good way. The property itself is amazing and locatied in the heart of the city offers travelleres, business and vacationers all you can ask for. Yesterday, I called the hotel and spoke to the concierge Patrick challenging him to find me a particular type of spirit not readily available in the Portland market (Ciroc Coconut vodka...my wife loves it and you can't get it in Vancouver, BC). Patrick happily accepted the challenges and much to my surprise had it waiting in my room when I arrived. Josee yet another "star" hotel concierge, called me yesterday afternoon to advise they had tracked down the last two bottled and that htey would arrange to have it in my room. I mean, when you hear "whatever Whenever" at the W Hotels and then you are treated with what otherwise can be referred to as Whatever Whenever by two concierges at this remarkable hotel, it gives you a hightened appreciation for all that is right with any hotel stay...THE STAFF!!! Folks, try this property out for business, pleasure or a romantic little jaunt. Bottom line...It's one of my favorites and am sure it will become one of yours if you give it a try!!! Paul
