okay, I know I am in a minority here, or perhaps saying what others are afraid to, but I just don't get the panache this place clearly has. Yes, the service is impeccable, but in my book it is so impeccable as to border on creepy. Who of us really needs that much attention. The decor is extravagantly eclectic, but just too too much. In addition, our room was on the second floor. I awoke throughout the night to the sounds of the people above us walking around. This is an old property and the floors creak - a lot. (I do not consider myself a light sleeper.) In addition, there is one thing that I found rather tacky -- the room charge includes breakfast, but it only includes the continental breakfast. Somehow with rates exceeding $1,000 per night one would think it would be otherwise.
