You should know that I am a big fan of the Princess Anne, before you read my comments. Luxury Stay suites are a new annex to the main hotel, which I have stayed in before and loved. It was not mentioned when I made my reservation that these suites were located on a busy street that has much more traffic noise. I was expecting the quiet neighborhood ambience of the main hotel. If you're going to call the new suites "luxury" it would be nice to provide some help with carting baggage, groceries, etc. up the 3 flights of stairs to the room. We were 4 tired and hungry women, which meant lots of stuff to carry. It was difficult to locate the parking and the front door from the instructions we received. So our arrival was more stressful than I would have liked.
I suggest that the management provide more towels (again, 4 women need more than one towel each for 2 days), TP and trash bags. On the positive side, the place was spotlessly clean, spacious and tastefully decorated.
The freestanding tub is charming but inconvenient since there is no place to put shower supplies when the curtains are closed. I don't imagine that many groups will be taking baths in the mornings, but the shower is weird. Also there were no hooks in the bath or bedrooms for hanging robes, clothing, wet towels, etc. and nowhere to put toiletry bags besides the bathroom floor.
For my money, I would be more inclined to book 2 rooms in the main hotel the next time and not have to walk down the street for breakfast (which is excellent, by the way)
As of this review there was no response from management about my comments.
