Was looking for a hotel near Morristown for a one night stay, found this place online and wanted to book a large room/suite that had a hot tub. Their website was a little confusing to me, I was not sure if there were other rooms with hot tubs, or if the only one that had a hot tub was the one called "Presidential Suite." So I called them and was told that the Presidential Suite, which they also refer to as their Honeymoon Suite, was the only one with a hot tub and that it was booked for the night I wanted. I told the woman on the phone that it looked like it was available on their website and she told me that I could book it online if I wanted it. She explained that they save the Presidential Suite for weddings but, if no wedding is booked, they make it available online. So, if you call them and are told it is unavailable, check the website.
Pros: nice big room, kitchenette area with desk and two chairs, huge four poster bed. Huge fancy walk in shower with multiple wall jets.
Not pros: only one bathrobe in the closet--?? Not sure why only one bathrobe for the honeymoon suite, I guess someone doesn't get to wear one...
Turned on the hot tub jets and Wow! Thought I was inside a Boeing engine! After I recovered from laughing hysterically at how loud the jets were, I was able to reach the button to turn them off. So, it was basically a large bathtub. Someone needs to check that out, it is definitely not normal for them to be that loud. The one advantage of the loud hot tub jets was that they drowned out the sounds of all the people getting off the elevators that are on the other side of the same wall. Not sure why the "Honeymoon Suite" is right next to the elevator bank, it is certainly not the most private location in the hotel! And the walls are very thin! We could almost make out conversations on the other side of the wall.
Unfortunately did not get a chance to check out the antiques in the rest of the facility, apparently the restuarant has some very special old pieces in it. The lobby of the hotel is pretty stunning, though, with one of the only five remaining Louis Comfort Tiffany carved mahogany mantelpieces as the centerpiece.
Overall, a very nice hotel, I would stay here again, but I'll probably skip the hot tub suite next time!
