    Very Good8.0
    my romantic getaway
    Me and my companion enjoyed our stay at the Swann House in the II Duomo room. The room itself in terms of decor and furniture was very dated. I understood each room had a theme, but in my opinion the furniture could used some reupholstering. The bathroom was weird and fun in terms of the art, and the shape,etc. however, the bathroom rug was very dingy and could have used a good shampoo. I refused to step on it with my bare feet. In terms of cleanliness, everything else was pretty clean. My stars however goes to the service. Both women (I'm sorry their names fail me) were so friendly and warm, and accommodating. One afternoon me and my companion had leftovers from dinner the night before, and even though the microwave wasn't available to us, the staff warmed our food on their china, and served us our leftovers in the sun room. When we arrived we advised the staff that we had to leave early, the morning of our departure, so we would not be able to attend breakfast. They offered baked goods to be left out so we would have a breakfast to go, and she included tea bags that I was excited about the day before, and to boot,she left a nice thank you letter attached to our packaging. Overall the house was nice even though I prefer more modern accommodations, but it's the customer service that gets me every time, and this case.. their service was 5 stars.
