We stayed in the Victory Wing and revelled in the lap of luxury. Our package included free breakfast and happy hour each evening between 5 and 7pm with complementary cocktails and hors d'oeuvres.
The only let down was the extra bed that we had requested was not available at check-in and still not supplied 6 hours later, even though we had received a confirmatory email 2 days prior to our stay that the bed would be in the room. When the extra bedding was finally supplied it ended up being a mattress on the floor, not an extra bed as expected. This was the only let down to our stay and we would return again without hesitation. We would recommend this hotel to other travellers who wish for luxury at a good price.
