My husband and I are used to staying at fine hotels, but this is now right at the top of our very favorites. First of all, the service is extraordinary. Amanda, in the reception area was amazingly helpful, friendly and efficient. She offered us special pillows, which I have honestly never heard of a hotel doing, but is an awesome treat. She brought a "boomerang" pillow to our room while we were at dinner, but they had memory foam and full body ones as well.
The room was beyond gorgeous. Personally I am not a "brown" person, and the room was decorated in browns, but it was so beautiful that the colors were not a turnoff at all. (By the way, my photos don't come close to doing the room justice). The bathroom was also gorgeous, and as big as a small bedroom. The jacuzzi was huge, and had a rainfall shower head over it. It was all surrounded with brown stone tile, and both bathing and showering felt positively luxurious. There were more towels than we could possibly use. Everything was spotlessly clean, in the room and bathroom. Some of the decor is a bit worn, but that is part of the theme. The room offered a Keurig coffee machine, microwave and mini-fridge, ceramic coffee mugs and lovely wineglasses. In fact, we bought 2 of the glasses to take home as souvenirs.
I had seen "The Art of Shaving" advertised and I signed my husband up for a super-special shave treatment, and he enjoyed it more than I ever imagined he would. After that, he decided that I should get a massage the following day, which was spectacular (Dana was the masseuse). I then sent HIM over to get the same massage because it was so good. The prices were quite reasonable, and the service was top-notch. I am naturally frugal, but I don't feel that a single penny was wasted there!
We had dinner at the onsite casual restaurant Osteria Avanti, which I will review separately, but suffice it to say that it was great. The breakfast at the same restaurant was quite unique. It was continental, so mostly bread and fruit, but with some nice twists and a good variety. It's not like a full hot buffet but it is quite appropriate for the hotel style.
The ONLY complaint I have, and I am really stretching here, is that I think they need to use more fabric softener in the laundry. They had lovely cotton waffle blankets for the beds, but they felt like sandpaper, and the beautiful bathrobes and towels also felt a bit too stiff.
Seriously, this place is a real gem. I am already planning to bring my mother-in-law here in the fall when she comes to visit. And, I will be dropping hints to a special young lady in my life who is getting close to possibly getting engaged. This would be a fabulous place for her wedding!
