Taking the Waters
Posted Dec 29, 2016 on Hotels
Subtle, tasteful, all-but-invisible service. Delicious, hearty food included in the room rate. Endless hot mineral water with most of the sulfur smell removed. Huge soaking tub for two in the room; shower stall in the bathroom. Good linens on the bed.
Less good towels, and 4 was not enough of them. Bathrobes in the closet, too small for much of America (including me). Gas fireplace in the room, though it didn't light. (To be fair, the front desk offered to come and light it but we were already in the tub and didn't want to get out.)
Didn't take advantage of afternoon tea, though if it was anything like the hot breakfast, it must have been ample and tasty. There is a continental breakfast for early risers, the idea of which brought undeserved, awful images of hotels past and frozen little Sara Lee danish in cellophane. I am certain this is not the case here! The hot breakfast included steel cut oats with cooked pears, many kinds of fresh fruit, fresh juices, baked eggs Florentine, crisp, thick-cut bacon, roasted cubed potatoes, boiled eggs, bread and bagels, served piping hot on a well-attended buffet.
I want to come back in the summer and enjoy the pool and outdoor attractions in the area. There is a ten-mile bike path along the Rogue River that starts a block from the resort, for starters.
