I wanted to give an "excellent" review, but it had a couple things that gave it a "very good." It was a lovely room, but we really didn't like the first floor location. The hotel was too booked to move us up to a higher floor. We had an executive king studio in the turret. This room was over $400 a night.
For over $400 a night, I do not expect to find a heavy layer of dust on any fixture. The bathroom sconces were heavily caked in dust. Unlike some other reviews for less expensive rooms, we were not greeted with any special amenities. We were on a trip for our 21st anniversary.
I also want to ask future hotel designers to please not make the room or door to the toilet translucent or transparent. I see this more in Europe, but I'm also seeing it in the U.S. Who wants to go to the bathroom in a room with glass walls? Maybe I'm just getting old. I like solid walls and a solid door for my toilet.
For over $400 a night I do not want to see rust trickling down any surface. I found this along the glass wall of the shower.
OK, those are my criticisms, now to the positives.
I loved the location. It was a little hike to the river area and all that activity, but being across from Forsyth Park was lovely. We loved the upstairs lounge. The staff was great in the hotel. The lounge upstairs had wonderful jazz over the weekend and we enjoyed the roof terrace. The lobby lounge was also great. Having a shuttle to downtown was very nice. The flavored water in the lobby was refreshing. The pool area was beautiful. Our bed was extremely comfortable. The lobby boutique shop is filled with exquisite art and jewelry. The art in the hotel is wonderful.
Overall, I would recommend this hotel, but it does have a few things to work on. I have gotten pickier over the years about what I expect in a hotel. If I'm paying these kinds of prices, and paying $4.00 for a can of Coke from the in-room honor bar, I expect near perfection. This was close, but not quite there. I hope the hotel will work to get this beautiful property to where it should be.
