The property is lovely, clean, the problem was we were told despite a hurricane coming in we should continue with our trip because Expedia wouldn't credit us and they couldn't credit us due to Expedia rules and that they would take care of us with food and drink if the power went out or the city had any issues, the power went out in the hotel and surrounding area on our 1st night and didn't come on until the middle of night our last night, the 1st morning there was coffee muffins yogurt and fruit, after that we were lucky to have family near that managed to pick us up and feed us because the hotel ran out of food as of Saturday mid day and they didn't make arrangements for more.

The hotel was beautiful. The front door staff were very friendly as well as the staff in the restaurant. However, we found the front desk staff not very friendly and the one woman we dealt with on our departure was very aloof. We were there last week and loved our trip. We have stayed in a number of hotels and are familiar with how hotels work. Again, great hotel but front desk personnel ( just a couple of the employees), need some more training..

Very friendly. On-site parking (had issue with them working a couple of times and had to be re-validated at front desk which is awkward but it was the only inconvenience. Everything else about the stay was perfect.

Overpriced. Big room with a tiny bathroom (so small the towel rack was in the shower). Upgraded room had cheap furnishings with little charm. Guest services lacking. Saving grace was cleanliness and a very comfortable bed. Not worth the premium price.
