Overall, Granduca is a lovely...
Liked: Overall, my experience was very nice. More attention could have been paid to bussing in the outdoor eating area - on both mornings, the tables adjacent to me were dirty throughout my meal. Also, the fact that water had to be boiled understandably created extra work, it seemed to take a long time to get hot coffee. Finally, the choice of dinnerware I found completely inappropriate for the kind of food; I had ordered the meatballs in the bar for a mid evening snack. They came in a sphere shaped bowl that was higher on the top the the edge at the bottom. Out of habit, I placed my knife on the edge after taking a bite and it slid off the edge right on to my lap covering my white shirt with grease and sauce, not to mention the sound of a crash. My shirt was ruined. When serving anything that requires a knife, the vessel's edge should be horizontal to be able to accommodate the flatware resting between bites!
Disliked: Choice of dinnerware, as mentioned above, was inappropriate for the kind of food. My knife flew down the sloped edge of the bowl right on to my shirt and lap covering me in red sauce and grease. Shirt was ruined. Dinner ware should be practical and not impede the diner from exercising proper etiquette when dining! Sometimes, trends are just bad ideas! The View from the rear of the property - I was told I had a lovely view of the hill country. I checked in and found that my view was of the dumpster/staging area past the outdoor patio. Happily, I was moved to a lovely room with a nicer view on my last evening.

Great place for any occasion.
Liked: Staff in all areas were fabulous. Kudos to management for suberb training! All areas asking," how is your stay,are we meeting expectations,is there anything else we can do?" Environment itself was lovely!

Liked: It was unusual in a specialty hotel to have three noticeable stains in the room, two on the carpet and one headboard.

Disliked: Hotel Staff walked into my room twice the first day without knocking. Luckily I was on business and not with my wife and daughter.
