My wife & I stayed here for 4 days towards the end of August 2011. The location is good & the staff tries hard to please. However, the concierge services need some increase in knowledgeability & professionalism (talk to the Spa lady, she knows everything). The room we stayed in was fine, but not for prices that exceed those at the very best Four Seasons hotels in the world (where we've stayed). The bathroom totally lacks storage for your toiletries, supplying a knee high etage stacked with towels & a thin glass shelf atop the pedestal sink. Also, there's no full length mirror in the room itself.
Breakfasts are very good, but coffee service needs improvement by putting insulated carafes on the table. Coffee also lacks body. Charging $18/per day for parking in a non-urban environment is insulting. The manager of the hotel is very experienced and knows about the hotel's short comings, however we only saw him once during our stay. All in all, the hotel will provide a comfortable experience, but trust me it's WAY over priced. That said, we paid for it anyway & so do others.
