    Pleasant stay.
    Friendly staff and I loved the text-able butler feature. The room was great. Only drawback for the room was the mini fridge wasn't holding a cold temperature, and we had bottle for our son. Other than that, if you self-park in the garage, there didn't appear to be options for bellhop service. We had a lot of bags and a toddler, so it required quite a bit of wrangling to get everything/one inside for check-in. I was surprised we weren't asked if we wanted assistance with our bags when we checked in at the front desk. The pool water was also surprisingly cold. Our son loves to swim but it was a bit too chilly.

    From start to finish the Pfister is top notch. From the check-in and valet to the checkout everything was spot on. The spa experience was great. The view from blu is breathtaking. The dog policy is what all hotels should be, open and friendly. Sean, Terry, demarco and Haley are what make hospitality industry jobs that turn into incredible careers. The GM should be proud if his team, they are well read, well versed and super informative. We didn’t want to leave but life as usual calls us back.

    The hotel is amazing with a lot of history. The lobby is a place to people watch and just take in the history. We spent an hour and a half walking around different floors observing the wonderful paintings. The rooms are older but updated amenities.

    Had a Club King room next to a designated party room for a large group. Crazy noisy at 5pm already. No trouble to change our room to a few floors below where it was totally quiet.
