    • “Quietly Luxurious”
      Such a beautiful hotel, yet never feels overwhelming, busy/chaotic. The location is perfect (quiet neighborhood but a stone’s throw away from action), the service was excellent (they attend to every detail/need, all with tremendous class). Despite the luxury, it felt comfortable, even homey. Would go back in a heartbeat.
