From the minute you step inside the hotel, you know you are in a hotel that is comfortable in its own skin. The staff is very professional and the suites are memorable. If you have the fortune of getting lakefront, the view is mesmerizing. The concierge club is nice but far too small for the amount of guests that use it so you have to fight for a seat. The property is well maintained and very clean. My favorite part was the bench in some of the elevators--such a throwback to the elegance of the past.
