All areas of the property performed.
The suites are really well done with great attention to detail. Shower had light show and music. Good materials used throughout, room service was effective. Staff were friendly and competent. These days $950 a night for a suite doesn’t get you that much, at the Fontenay it gets you what it used to get you.

Stayed in a room with partial lake view. Loved the hotel design. The balcony was great for breakfast coffee. Room service was fast. Bathroom well organized but the hair dryer was hard to find haha so keep looking if you think there isn't one. Loved walk in closet with full length mirror. Would def stay here again. Well located in great Hamburg neighborhood by the lake.
