Dear Angbas81, Thank you so much for your kind review of your most recent stay. I am glad to read there were soo many things you enjoyed about your stay with us. The cons you are mentioning are things we hope to address in the foreseeable future as the heating unit is indeed a bit dated. Thank you again and we hope to be able to welcome you back for another visit sometime soon, Sincerely, Alice Bouman General Manager

I stayed here with my husband and our dog for 2 nights around the holidays and had a wonderful experience. The hotel is truly pet friendly - allowing the dogs to hang out everywhere except the restaurant. There were at least 8 other dogs that we saw during our stay but never

Hiya, we visited the Grace Vanderbilt this year at the end of September and the roof top bar was open in the evening and perfect for watching the sunset sipping cocktails. You'll love it! Not sure about brunch though.

Dear guest, the Grace Vanderbilt hotel has two wood burning fireplaces, one in Christy's lounge and one in the main dining room, where our guests can either enjoy with more privacy the warmth of the lounge or mingle with other diners in the dining room accompanied by the sounds of the piano. In regards to your question, one of our Admiral's suites has a wood burning fireplace, but for better functionality, we use dura flame style logs. I hope that the above answer is to your satisfaction, and do not hesitate to contact our concierge team that may assist you with any additional information. Sincerely, Kostas Mavrogiannis General Manager

We cannot clearly answer if the specific rate you are viewing includes the fees, but will be clear if you review the pricing on our website. In general, most of the rates posted are subject to a resort fee that covers parking and taxes. In our website, rates are subject to both. For more details, you can always view the fees and taxes mentioned during the booking process. Best regards,
