“Jaw-Dropping Brunch at the Newly Renovated Naples Hotel”
Reviewed 27 May 2014

Do NOT pass this hotel and restaurant by based on old reviews. The place is under new ownership and management, and everything about the place is TO DIE FOR!!!!! I'd love to simply say the hospitality, rooms and Sunday brunch left us speechless, which it all did, but for the sake of sharing a review, I will have to find my words. We often stay in a log cabin getaway just south of Naples and are always on the lookout for somewhere awesome to eat in the area. Having read very lackluster reviews of the Naples Hotel both as a hotel and a restaurant, we were ready to pass it by. But my husband felt so drawn to check out the historic architecture that we wandered in on a lazy Sunday morning this Memorial Day weekend.

We were immediately swept into the warm embrace of the new owners and family, whose mighty handshake and laughing joviality made us feel like instant family. We were offered, and accepted, a personal tour of all the newly renovated rooms. "Rooms" is not an adequate descriptor. The sprawling historic suites upstairs radiated the sweet decadence of sizable spaces of a bygone era. Each suite has been freshly repainted and reappointed with fabulous antiques from the local area. The ensuite bathrooms were staggering in their beauty.

Jaws agape at the contrast between Tripadvisor reviews and the current reality, we stumbled back downstairs and out to the sumptuously laden Sunday brunch served to us on stiff white linens on the front porch. Everything from hand-carved roast beef to omelettes made-to-order left us too busy oohing and aahing over every bite to make much small talk with others. But when we found out that even the maple syrup had been prepared from scratch by our omelette chef, we just had to find out more of the story. Turns out we were being served by none other than the Mayor of Naples.

Yes, that's right, the Mayor of Naples, or Brian, as he simply introduces himself, turns out to be a very gifted cook and jack-of-many-trades. He came out and chatted with us on the porch, and only at the end of all our wandering conversation did he happen to mention that he was the town Mayor, and that he was fulfilling a longtime dream of serving up gourmet breakfast and lunch fare at the historic hotel.

To Sharon and Lou, the new hotel owners, and to Brian, our quietly understated master chef, we can only say: Dream On!!!!! To all visitors to Naples, we can only say, come share in the Dream!!!!! --Karen & Steve, Rochester
