This is a big hotel in a corporate mold, but done up in the craftsman / Greene and Greene style. It looks great, and the appointments have all been selected to remind you that you're in a craftsman property. Well of course you aren't, they never built on this scale and everything is relatively new.
The hotel is basically a country club. I did not have the time to use or explore the golf course, spa or pool. The Grill at the Golf course was one of the worst meals of the year: the salad was basic and needed seasoning. The pasta was over cooked in a tasteless sauce. It would have been returned if I'd had time to wait. Room Service was fine, though the water for tea tasted of coffee.
On the positive side we had a great dinner at the main restaurant. Terrific tomato soup and the scallop meal was similarly wonderful. Actually, scallops were perfect--both in cooking and seasoning. I also had a 'drugstore burger' from the bar on the balcony for lunch. It was a bit of a contact sport--juicy and drippy--but delicious.
The rooms are large and comfortable. It would be nice to have convenient ports to plug into at the desk. The wifi is nice and strong, although you have to sign in daily. The cosmetic products are really nice and as they're not overly are sweet are good for men and women.
On the whole, not bad, but pricey for what you get.
