Bathroom was well appointed. Looks like this hotel has been redone in the past few years and it shows. But - the restaurant... More

We arrived a little early for our reservation but were able to check in. The desk staff was very friendly and accommodating. Our room had a spectacular view. We had a very comfortable bed, 4 cup coffee maker, good AC, fridge but no microwave. A good shower with good pressure. The only downside was the wifi. It was extremely slow.... More

We stayed on the night of June 14. Great view from the restaurant. Service was tip top. We were treated like family. Waiter was Shane, restaurant manager was Kate, bar server Jo. All made us feel at home. View is spectacular. We're planning another stay!

Both of our rooms had the most awful odor of cigarette smoke. We asked to switch rooms but were told there weren't any available. Someone came to spray air freshener, which only lasted a few minutes. We complained again, and the maintenance guy brought up an "o-zone machine" which only made the room smell worse. He apologized and said he... More
