My husband and I stayed here recently in connection with a business conference. This is clearly a place that you will either really like-- or find really grating. We fell into the latter category.
Starting with the rooms. Our room was dark. Very dark. The walls were brown, and the furniture and drapes were an olive green velour. To me, it felt like the inside of a coffin. To add to the problem, the lighting in the room was very poor. The hotel decorators must have envisioned the whole thing as lending an aura of Southern Gothic charm and whimsy, but to me, it was just gloomy, tacky and weird. There wasn't enough light in the room to read comfortably. The king size bed only had one night table and lamp, so if both people want to read in bed, it's impossible. Plus, since our room was on the first floor in a busy neighborhood, we couldn't open the curtains all the way to let the light in without feeling totally exposed. Atmosphere in the common areas of the hotel was really sterile.
Getting to service, they tried hard, but the service was inept. Housekeeping took forever, and the room never felt totally clean when we returned at the end of the day. The wastebasket in the room was not emptied once during our entire 3-night stay. When we checked out, our bill was totally botched. Staff did have a pleasant attitude, though.
All in all, this is not a luxury hotel in the sense that one would expect. When we travel, we will generally stay in upscale boutique hotels rather than the chains. We like hotels that are a little "different" and that provide a level of personal service. But the Mansion on Forsyth park fell short in most respects, and felt a bit "off." If I were paying my own money rather than staying for business, I would have checked out the first night. In talking to other guests there, people were really divided about the place-- this hotel, more than most, really is a matter of personal taste.
