4/10 Fair

Tired hotel with weak staff issues.
We have stayed here before & had a great time. This one not so much, similar room to last, bathroom door sticks sometimes towels had threads hanging & small tears in it. This was cosmetic, this was the fourth hotel of a week holiday & by far the worst staff. On check in we eventually went & got our own bags, valet handed me my car keys on checkout & walked away. 4 or 5 valets stood & watched us load our luggage. Saved us a tip at least. The front desk on checkout acknowledged the hotel is old & needs updating but when we talkied about towels & no housecoats on first night( we had them for second night without mentioning it) figured it was a problem with just our room. As much as my Mother says I am special I do not see that being the case here. Very poor personnel. Very good fitness facility to ens on a good note.

Luxurious details, comfy bed
Beautiful historic hotel with incredible luxurious details everywhere. Very comfortable bedding and got a good night's rest. WiFi and parking are extra, and no fridge or microwave in room. It was an extremely busy, sold out night when we went. Valet took 45 mins to retrieve our car but staff are helpful and friendly.
