I have stayed at many fine hotels throughout America. This hotel is very lovely to look at but not one bit welcoming. The staff is aloof and watches your every move. This is not a property for teen-age guests. Late one evening we were escorted to our room by a stuffy employee. I don't think he believed we were actually registered in the hotel. The room and bath were probably the roomiest I've ever seen. The breakfast was very extensive and the champagne was a nice touch. I didn't think much of the location since it costs us 12 euros for every taxi trip. I ordered a cranberry and grey goose at the bar and it cost me 10 euros. That's around $13.00 US. We checked out 3 days early to move closer into town.
This property would be perfect for someone like Caroline Kennedy but not your average upper class American.
