I am in the luxury hotel business and have opened a new property before. Because of this, I very rarely will try a place in the first few months of opening. I made an exception with Salamander because I had an occasion that warranted such a property. To be honest, there were some rough edges on the service in several areas, but frankly, the overall service was better than I expected for only being open a week. Those individuals that had a little trouble still had a great attitude - friendly, warm, and most importantly, you could tell they cared and were trying. I'll give someone a pass any day in this situation. Now that I have that out of the way - the grounds and facility are beautiful. Well manicured, clean and comfortable. Our room was a suite on the Autumn (4th) floor and was beautifully decorated and spotless. The bed was comfortable, the shower good, the bath products very nice. The food in Harriman's was excellent - we had the onion soup and gnocchi to start, and both were very good. Strip steak and lentil stew for the mains were also excellent. Last but not least - the spa is amazing. Incredible, extensive facility - had a couples treatment - Kerry delivered a great massage, and my wife loved her facial. We will definitely return!
