Elaine in the concierge lounge continues to be a bright spot in my day when I stay at this property! The breakfast smoothies she makes are a delightful start to a business day! The front desk staff are always friendly and ready to assist you. This property is currently undergoing beautiful renovations and I look forward to my next stay!

The Pelagia hotel restaurant is fabulous, only surpassed by the intuitive, friendly and professional service from our server Jayne. Can't wait to come back and eat again and have the Jayne experience!
