Perfect get away

Staff at the Hotel was very courteous and helpful. The doorman to reception, concierge, restaurant, pool, room cleanliness couldn't have been better. The entire landscaping at the Hotel was a pleasure to look at. The shuttle to the beach worked great and we had a wonderful experience. Thanks to all!

Nice digs

Perfect. Warm, insightful, professional staff. Nicely appointed room, as you would expect from this quality brand. When the front desk learned that our visit was an anniversary celebration, a bottle of champagne discreetly appeared in our room. Very nice bar (try the "bacon old fashioned"), dinner and breakfast experiences. Highly recommended, particularly with the discount.

Everyone at this hotel was very friendly-the staff makes your stay a wonderful experience. Beautiful hotel, great food and drinks. We enjoyed the beach club and the convenience of the shuttle bus to the beach and St. Armands Circle. Fantastic experience-we will return!
