We were in town for an event, so someone else chose this location. What an excellent choice they made. All of the employees were attentive, polite, and seemed truly pleased to have us there.During our stay, I asked several questions about directions, where to buy certain items etc, and they went out of their way to get me correct answers. A couple of times the doormen hailed us cabs, which is not something we are used to doing so we appreciated that. We also were within a 5-10 minute walk to the Metro station, which is an adventure in itself.
They had no king rooms left when we made our reservation, so we were in a two-queen room.--comfortable bed and linens. There was still plenty of floor space to move around. We got a corner room just as we prefer. It was far from the elevator and felt very private and quiet. Everything was clean and fresh.
Thankfully there was an umbrella in the closet because I had forgotten mine. Yes, it is purple and says Palomar on it, but such thoughtfulness can be rewarded with a little advertising.
We also requested a coffee maker in our room, and it was delivered on a tray with mugs, coffee, and condiments.
As others have mentioned, the wine hour in the early evening is a welcome amenity. They served the wines at proper temperatures, which greatly enhances the flavor and enjoyment. They also were serving sake in honor of the Cherry Blossom Festival- delicious.
The elevator was usually slow to arrive, plus one of them was temporarily out of service. But that just gave us something to joke about with other guests.
The event price did not go over to another night, so we were happy to have experienced this level of service while we could.
