My husband and I stayed at the Vanderbilt Grace hotel for three nights in September and we absolutely loved it!! Everyone who works there is so nice - the service is amazing without the pretentious attitude you quite often find in five star hotels. They make you feel extremely welcome!! One day while I was waiting in the lobby for my husband to return from a sailing excursion the hotel personel brought me some wonderful bar snacks when I was complaining that I was starving. It's little touches like that make the difference from a good hotel and a GREAT hotel!
Breakfast buffet was included and it was exceptional with a great selection including cheese, cold cuts, vegetables with olive oil and balsamic dressing what a refreshing change from high fat arterly clogging bacon and eggs, which if you prefer can be ordered a la cart for an additonal cost. We ate breakfast in the gorgeous outdoor English style garden. The garden is definilty one of the many highlights of the hotel. There is also an outdoor fire pit if it is cool in the evening.
The outdoor pool was fabulous!! The indoor heated pool and sauna were also amazing.
Our suite was gorgeous with calming neutral colors, beautiful antiques and oil paintings. The turn down service was perfect and the essential oils was a nice touch!
The double spa shower head was very nice!! Washroom design and finishes were practical and very taseful.
The public areas were very elegant and well appointed. We didn't eat the the hotel restaurant so we cannot comment on it but it looked very nice. We just don't tend to eat at hotel restaurants.
The location is fantasic and you can walk everywhere! If you don't like to walk you may want to drive to the mansions.
This is one the nicest hotels we have stayed at and we would definitely return!
