I was looking at photos posted here and they reminded me that I wanted to ask a couple questions. When we stayed at CTI, there were flowers placed in our room each day, either on the bed or in sconces on the wall - just a single tropical bloom, but we took pictures of them every day and truly enjoyed the flowers. We even had flower petals on our bed one day.
During our recent trip to CSS there were never any little extra "touches" like that from housekeeping - no shaped towels on the bed, no flowers in the room (not on our bed, no vases, not on our in-room breakfast tray). The room was cleaned beautifully every day, and the bed was turned down each night, but those extra details were conspicuously absent based on our experience at CTI. Not having flowers in our room at all was a real surprise to me. Has anyone else had a different experience at CSS in this regard?
Also, every day we'd leave a note for the in-room bar attendant, asking them to leave ice and that never happened any of the 6 days we made the request. We didn't even have an ice bucket on any given day unless we called in-room dining and asked for an ice bucket full of ice. I was also curious as to whether this is typical at CSS.
I haven't written a trip report yet, so I haven't taken the opportunity to absolutely "gush" about how fantastic our stay was and how wonderful the staff were (though I did write a review on TripAdvisor). The details of flowers and ice did not detract from our wonderful experience; I only mention these details/questions because I am curious.
