High end but some problems for this price point

DrNic1 (Gaithersburg, Maryland) on Sep 29, 2023

So this is a high end property with some high end touches but comes with challenges that are just plain disappointing at this price point On the good side Nice really comfortable rooms spacious and I had a delightful balcony with a courtyard view that was nicely private from adjacent rooms. Nice shower and bathroom and decent inclusion of espresso machine with 4 ‘real’ coffee pods (not the usual 2 real and 2 non caffeinated which was a pleasant surprise). The darkness and lack of any spurious extra light at night was a great positive and not often the case. So top marks for this The negative Let’s start with the credit card hold for your stay which on my card was declined for fraud alert and created no end of aggravation as I had to call to clear my credit card for use. When I saw the hold placed I pretty much fell of my chair - $2000 for a one night stay! That’s insane and no wonder got tagged as possibly fraudulent. My rate was nowhere near this? Signage and finding places - woeful. Not just me but I met several other guests as I got lost and frustrated reveal times navigating the property rooms etc Then the sound proofing was bad. I had a king with a connecting door that was closed but I might as well have been sitting in the connected room as I listened to the conversation going on in there. Thankfully it did not persist into the night but I was worried and turned on the TV just to block out the conversation Really expected much better for this level of hotel

Absolutely beautiful stay. Staff went above and beyond for our needs. My bed was so comfortable. The tub was so deep that you could do water aerobics - almost! The food was so tasty! It was such a great experience. Nothing negative to mention.
