I booked one of the parlor suites for my boyfriend's birthday and was pleasantly surprised to find we had the Mary Wingfield Scott Suite-the nicest one! It is the one most frequently requested by honeymoon couples. The decor was lovely & tasteful with a beautiful king sleigh bed. My boyfriend absolutely loved it and I got lots of kudos!
The overall cleanliness score was high, but there were a few maintenance issues. The bathtub faucet broke off in my hand (I was still able to take a shower but I had to move the faucet by the bolt) and the hairdryer was broken. Also, for what it's worth the TV was absolutely miniature! Not that watching TV should be so big a deal in such a posh & romantic room but it should be visible! Also I felt that for the premium these nicer rooms cost the amenities should be better quality-more towels & a bathrobe, please.
The staff seemed pleasant but very very young to be dealing with the issues that can come up at night. We liked the free shuttle service but it didnt show up on time for our dinner reservation time as requested.
Despite minor problems we definitely plan to return next birthday!
