We had family in town so my grandparents got a villa at Montage. I agree with some previous reviews that there's some wear and tear, but it's still incredible. The location is perfect for relaxing and the staff is top notch.More

In addition to deterioration, Competition has passed it up in terms of service and quality of experience. At current quality level it is overpriced for meals and rooms.

I was there for lunch. It is a very elegant formal setting. I don't know if they would entertain a "Happy hour" setting. But a quick call will give you the answer you are seeking.
