Some of the reviews are poor because people don't understand that this is an old, European style hotel with a large sitting area with heavy dark woods, chandeliers, a quiet, upscale lounge and older rooms with high ceilings that empty onto a wrap around porch. This is not a resort, it is not a place for families with 6 kids or people who expect a Hilton. When you book this, you are seeking that old world, old style accommodations. We stayed there one night, found the people most helpful and the rooms quite charming. It is near the park, the lake and several good restaurants.
