Maybe the best hotel we've ever stayed in. Of course, it's expensive. But you truly get what you pay for. The property is magnificent, the grounds are well-tended (but not fussy), the bed was incredible (i can't remember the last time I slept until 8), the food was superb, the location is perfect for us NYers. But what puts this place at the top of the list is the staff. So welcoming, friendly, and not a person with an attitude or a trace of insincerity. Everyone from a young man on the dining room staff who'd been there for three weeks and admitted to being scared and was so appreciative of our words of encouragement to Christelle who knew her wines but more importantly, wanted to know us and for us to know her. The service is amazing - there must be hidden cameras everywhere. How else could they know we were coming and be there to greet us - whether it was our arrival on Friday or going to breakfast on Saturday.
We enjoyed shopping in Lenox - not something I usually do. Had a wonderful lunch at Alta. Visited the Berkshire Museum. Drove to the summit of Mt. Greylock.
Save your pennies, put this place on your list of Things to Do Before I Die.
