My wife and I stayed here for our 2nd anniversary Sept 2013. We were upgraded to a basic two room suite which was lovely. This hotel, like the NYC Waldorf Astoria is a high end experience hotel, to be admired and appreciated as a throwback to a bygone time. If you allow yourself to do so, pause to admire the fine finishing of the design touches in the lobby and the Sazerac, which give the hotel tremendous character. The drinks at the Sazerac were made with such craftsmanship, they were like drinking 'art'. When staying at an 'experience' hotel like this I don't expect ultramodern luxury features, so character, charm and ultra-high level service are what you're paying for…and what we got. The concierge made perfect recommendations for whatever we desired to do that day…or eat…not to mention they would call ahead and make all the arrangements for us, lend us complimentary umbrellas, and even arranged for fresh flowers in the room for our anniversary for a very reasonable price (this was a nice surprise for my wife). The rooftop pool bar was just amazing; small pool and jacuzzi. The food at the pool bar was fabulous as well. Very nice gym, classy, clean and great quality equipment. We would absolutely stay here again.
