    Interesting. Florida's leading resort is Swan and Dolphin! How's that for quirky?

    The Sagamore in NY is incredible. I will definitely agree with that one! :yes:

    It really, really was. I don't think I've ever had such a lovely birthday, it quite spoiled me.

    And the Mother's Day Brunch that Sunday was SUPERB!!!

    A few photos...

    Baleigh LOVED the complimentary robes

    May I ask (and if you aren't comfortable answering, that is absolutely fine) what was the room rate price range?
