We arrived in the late evening to our studio suite to have a bottle of Champagne on water - must have been there all day. It was a sweet gesture though, as we were celebrating our 10th Anniversary.
Everyone was very friendly and always welcomed us back or expresssed interest in how our day was. There were a few men who worked the concierge desk, but all were fairly helpful with restaurant suggestions! The sedan service is definitely an added bonus, however I always felt guilty when asking for use of it. Like I was made to feel that I didn't deserve it, or that there were more important people to use it.
The location is fantastic.....so close to all the downtown attractions.....thus we sorta forgot about the waterfront, north end and such. Oh well, next time!
I enjoyed the quaint feeling I got from the front door men in their fedoras, the lift, doorbells to the room and the flowers on the window ledge.
I loved the hotel....but I am a bit torn as I don't think that it was worth every penny I spent. We did have a great experience, but honestly I have stayed in a lot of swanky hotels, with a much smaller price tag.
