First off, this wasn't the first hotel I booked for our trip. However, after reading reviews of the other hotel, then realizing the other hotel charges for wifi (my pet peeve) I decided to switch our reservation to the Hermitage. I originally thought it may be a bit stuffy based on the uber-posh interior decor. However, I loved the marketing on their website showing guest rooms merchandised with "casual" props. (Guitar cases, boots, etc). Feeling less intimidated We decided to give them a try. OH MY GOSH...wow. Just wow.
The hotel is breathtakingly historic and beautiful. The rooms are comfy and absolutely immaculate. You get free wifi, they give you a nespresso machine with free coffee pods in your room, the mini bar is stocked with amazing (and local) goodies.
However, without a doubt the staff are the jewel of this establishment. Every single employee made us feel welcome and special. They seemed genuinely gracious, and not overly trained to say the same scripted conversation to guests. They made us feel like VIPs. I've never felt so comfortable in such a grand environment!
Tips: Deb in the bar will make you feel like a local. You won't find a better bartender. Also, pay the extra to get the capital view....it's very special and so beautiful, especially at night.
We can't wait to come back.
