I have to admit, I was really looking forward to this place and maybe my expectations were too high. I loved that this place was historic and so 'Texan' but the renovations are a miss. There was issue after issue and if I'm paying several hundred dollars, I expect everything to be working, at minimum! I had high expectations because they are part of the 'small luxury hotels' but I'm not sure why that 'club' included them. I guess that goes to show that there still aren't any 'groups' 'clubs' that I can trust 100%, including JetSetter. The one positive thing was the staff, but unfortunately that itself won't make me want to stay at this hotel again.
