I'm #1 Fan of Chalet Suzanne since 1980's til 2009
I fell in love with Chalet Suzanne the first time I stayed there in the 1980's everything was perfect, food, service and the grounds were just beautiful. Yes, some things have changed over time, haven't we all? I agree with some of the comments, that some of the rooms are just adequate at best and need some creative inspiration. There can be some improvement on that. Yes, improvements are needed but I completely disagree with some of the reviews! Hey I've stayed in many big cities and really highly rated hotels and they turned out the worst: Miami reeks with poor hygiene practiced by the workers, filthy kitchens horrible service and dangerously bad food (mostly latin and island food) the most I think... safe AND tasty cuban food is "Larios" (not sure of the spelling) in South Miami.
I know I would rather stay at a place like Chalet Suzanne you have a better sense of whose preparing the food..a closer relationship if you will. Oh I don't know.... I really like knowing who's in the kitchen...makes for a more relaxing dining experience and the food is outstanding.
Most of the staff are experienced and knowlegdable, polite helpful people even more so in the dining room. I think you have to be flexible, it's a small town that's the beauty I continue to see the beauty emerging everytime I go which is pretty often, I visit often so I consider my self lucky.
The layout of the property is really special, the romantic garden is so pretty, the fly in breakfast offered yearly is really cool where people fly in park their plane come in have breakfast and fly out, beautiful planes, so awesome watching them take off!! Lots of landscaping taking place to continue the big garden like beauty of the property. It appears they (I'm assuming the family) are really taking it into the 21st century without losing the uniqueness of the early Chalet Suzanne.
New menu options regarding "brunch hours" the chef formally from LA with decent references/resume which is nice, I happen to think the the way to impress anyone is how good the food is and it was top notch everything was delicious we fell in love with everything that was offered on the brunch menu. The desserts were excellent, the service was a little to slow in the dining room...but the food really made up for that:)
This is not a place for people who: love James Bond, loved discos, decorate with plastic flowers in the home, live on microwave foods (everyday) and rely on their watch for every minute of every hour for everything. It is a magical place.
