This 4-year-old hotel set in a square design around a French-style courtyard has so many things to recommend it: Ryan, the indefatigable front desk clerk who is responsive beyond words and will even set up a fire in your personal fireplace in the bat of an eye; the delightful new manager, Christine, who helped us solve some minor problems; lovely hallways around the hotel perimeter; a top-notch restaurant right downstairs; an exquisite property even in the dead of winter; lush towels; and a bedding package very close to that at the Westin. But, to really get it right, a few things must be fixed: the water temperature for showers and baths was barely warm, though we mentioned this kindly on night 1 and it still wasn't fixed by night 3; settling cracks all over the interior that take away from the otherwise luxe feel; a lack of closet space (even in the grand Venetian suite, we could find not one place to hang a coat); some very worn furniture in some rooms; and, as mentioned in another review, the noise on floor 2 that can permeate the quiet of rooms on the first floor because no room in the whole hotel is carpeted (area rugs but no carpets). There are some other places where the lovely Belgian-born owner of the winery and hotel has cut corners or just made odd decorating choices that take away from the ambience. A hotel listed in the Select Registry, as this one is, should have a larger, nicer lobby, for instance. And the breakfast could be a little more ample. I also don't know how we would have found the place without a GPS. There is absolutely no exterior lighting leading up to the hotel, and on a dark winter moonless night, we found it only with the help of an iPhone map. But, this place is going to figure out soon how to fix the minor imperfections, so get here while it's still mildly affordable. Quite a find.
