We used United miles to stay here for two nights.
Arriving at an old style entrance is not great....people entering and exiting ONE set of tall french doors, up 2-3 steps....If you are handicapped, there must have been another entrance. (?). The entrance was ackward when you went to get your car...it's MUCH too tight for valet and people checking in. I'm surprised that they haven't changed this.
Hotel is old school glitz, very swanky. Check in was fast but the wait for the elevator took 7-8 minutes. Thank goodness we were on the 2nd floor and never used the elevator again! (used the steps just outside our door).
Room was good, we bring all our computer cords, extension cord was used for lap tops. Free wifi was great!! Loved the romantic old school feel of the room.
Bathroom: Good, except for NO shower curtain!, only 1/2 glass 'partition'! I hated getting water on everything! omg. this was weird. It was stressful taking a shower because you were trying to not splash too much!
TV was the Old kind. We watched American Idol and it was fine.
Had drinks in the bar, nice atmosphere.
Breakfast: Didn't do the buffet the first morning. There were only two-three wait staff and they were good but it took forever. Do NOT expect fast service, this is a different time zone. Food was good. Miss Patty Cakes makes the omelets, and was great.
Overall, we were happy. Moved onto the J.W. Marriot (due to meeting a friend) and it was nice to be in a modern hotel. We got to have both experiences.
I loved the antique feel of the hotel. Room service was good. I would stay here again if the price was right. Saw the roof pool, small but comparable to other hotels in similar settings. Gym was average size.
If you like antiques and authentic hotels, you will love Le Pavillion!
