I went back and forth here on my rating because it's not a five star hotel in many ways. The bathroom is only average, and the room decor is pretty tacky. However, the stay was so relaxing and abrasion-free that I have to give it the full five. The staff here is top-notch. The bellman was always on the ready to get our car with a smile on his face. The waitress in the restaurant went above and beyond when she learned that our food was cold, bringing hot food immediately and apologizing profusely. The yoga class my mom took was friendly and good. Literally, everyone we encountered had the same dedication to hospitality, and it made a real impression. Additionally, the Internet here was faster and easier to access than the far more expensive and chichi places we stayed in during this trip -- a real bonus because work continues to exist while we are out of town.
On balance, the hotel earned the full five.
