Some of the pricing is inaccurate. We just booked a room at Petigru Place and we’re being charged $263 for one night! Yikes! While I’m sure it’s a nice place, just be sure you really know the price! Why are we choosing this place? We were gifted a gift certificate.

The pricing was based off of their advertised rates at the time. Thanks for letting us know though!!!

According to their website the Chantily room is currently price at $140-$155, so the article would be correct that prices start at $140. Of course, depending on season, availability, and the room the price is likely be much higher.
