The round bar/restaurant was very cool. rooftop bar has a nice view of city and bar staff was friendly. Room was way above average and shower had more jets than an aircraft carrier. Thumbs up on the Curtiss!

Stunningly beautiful hotel. Loved the surprise spaces tucked in all over, such the lovely, big indoor/outdoor rooftop bar and party room with gorgeous views, the huge, handsome chandeliered revolving bar and 4 jeweled bathrooms off the lobby, beautiful restaurant and the amazing jacuzzi room. The luxurious guest rooms were amazing as well. No details left out.

It is rare for me to leave a hotel review, however, I felt compelled to pass on my opinion after staying here numerous times. I won't detail my experience because I can see from reviews left by others that the manager will reply back in a very unprofessional way. I will just very honestly say that this is an unbelievably beautiful hotel, possible the nicest in the area, but also has the poorest customer service of any hotel I've stayed in. What adds insult to injury is that management is completely oblivious to the fact that the the way they deal with their guest needs improvement. And of course you cannot get better if you don't acknowledge you have a problem. My advice is to stay at your own risk. The restaurant serves delicious food, and brunch and breakfast are delicious. However as other reviewers have noted, if you have to deal with the front desk or the manager, it will most likely leave a bad taste in your mouth and you will find yourself more than willing to forgo staying at this beautiful hotel and pay more money at a lesser property just to ensure you do not have to deal with the management staff of the Curtiss.

It's hard to take your review seriously as you post yourself as Anonymous. You can clearly see from the hundreds of great 5 Star reviews we receive regularly that your opinion appears to be isolated here. If you would care to discuss your issue, we would be more than happy to speak with you on Monday. Please call the hotel direct. The ball is in your court...

We stayed overnight, had dinner in the Chez Ami restaurant and had the complimentary breakfast. We also had drinks in the rotating bar on the main floor, The rooftop bar looked great but wasn't open until 5 and we were a bit early. The room was very comfortable. I was able to adjust the temperature during the night using the bedside screen. The walk in shower had 3 shower heads and 3 wall jets and a water temperature control button. All very hi tech. My husband had the best steak of his life (the 22 oz ribeye). And the desserts were amazing. We really enjoyed our stay. Oh, and the outdoor jacuzzi was lovely!

Fantastic hotel

We had a great first stay at the Curtiss hotel. The room was beautiful, comfortable and richly appointed. All the staff was friendly and helpful. We had a drink at the rooftop bar, unfortunately it was raining so we did not get a chance to sit next to the outdoor fire pit. The continental breakfast included eggs, bacon, potatoes, a variety of baked good (Mmm croissants!!), fresh fruit, etc... The only downside to the trip was that we couldn't stay longer! We are looking forward to our next visit.
