For the most part, this hotel lives up to Omni's standards of taking an older luxury property and offering very close to a Four Seasons or Ritz Carlton experience at 50% of the price. There were a few misses, mainly staff training issues, I expect, but we had a very nice stay. The issues were quickly resolved and the staff was very nice. Rooms at this property are good sized. Very high quality linens, bedding and towels. Bathroom is high quality, although on the small side for true luxury property (but, it appears to be a rehab of an older property, so, that is to be expected.) The location is great for business or history travelers. The bar is small, but very pleasant. Morning coffee on time.
