I was traveling with my spouse (who attended a conference at this hotel) and twin girls, age 8. We all really liked this hotel. It's beautiful, definitely a step above the garden-variety, expressway-exit Marriott. It has a beautiful landscaped courtyard with a wall around it, and a heated pool and hot tub, and lots of cushy seating in this protected atmosphere. The lobby area is snazzy, gleaming and modern, and appears very recently updated. Our corner room was lovely with its goose-down comforter and luxury linens. The complimentary aromatherapy toiletries from Bath & Body Works were a big hit with us girls. The staff were uniformly helpful, friendly and pleasant, really worked to please. The food in the dining room was good, if slightly overpriced (buffet breakfast, including all beverages, lots of ripe berries and fruit, shrimp & grits and custom omelets, was $17 for adults, but just $5 for the children). The room had a small problem with air quality--you can't open the windows for fresh air, and there was a surprising amount of condensation accumulating on the inside of the windows that eventually was enough to run down in small streams to the floor, which in turn showed some beginning signs of mold/damage. There was also a problem with our bill--the conference rate was applied only for the first night--and when we brought it to the clerk's attention at checkout, she wasn't willing or able to make the adjustment. That had to wait until we returned home, and I called a supervisor to ask again. Second time was the fix for that. Music being piped into that elegant lobby/lounge area was this sort of one-dimensional techno-throb, super-spare dance music, trying to be trendy I guess, which wasn't the best fit--most folks using a hotel like this would prefer classical, jazz, or some other more acoustic or melodious background music. But it was overall a positive experience, and we'd stay here again.
