The valet was the only issue with our stay, they lost my car! It took a hour to finally find it and we missed our dinner reservations.

The check in process was the highlight of our stay. Russell was everything. His personality is so welcoming. I would go back just because of him. The entire staff was friendly though. We didn't get our slippers upon request, one of the robes had red stains on the sleeve (thought it could be blood so we didn't touch it), and room service was not available during our stay (it was a Monday). I would let all of that slide because of Russell... keep him happy.
