We had stayed at this hotel several years ago and enjoyed our stay. It is a bit quirky, with an impressive collection of original contemporary art. That prior positive experience was, however, before we had kids, and this time unfortunately we discovered that the staff is not only NOT family-friendly, it is downright family-hostile. Although we had mentioned the kids when booking the room, they somehow decided to try to charge us more when they saw a (properly-behaved) 10-year-old boy, and suddenly they wanted to have credit-card guarantees and then collectively watched us like hawks, as if children were necessarialy ruffians out to damage their precious property.
All in all it was a very disappointing experience, because the hotel has the potential to be a fine choice for any traveler, including families (nice pool with cool sculpture garden, for example) but they seem to be very focused on the full-of-themselves childless artsy crowd. Based on the fact that the hotel appeared to be about 10% full on a summer weekend, they might want to rethink that strategy.
