Not at all what I expected... The reviews I read were great, but I was less than impressed, and very dissapointed... The room we had (empire), had such a strong smell of smoke that my husband couldn't sleep through the night. I understand the rooms have a fireplace and in such small quarters there wil be the smell of smoke. Keeping that in mind the draperies and canopy should be cleaned regulary, you can tell they're not!
The bathroom ceiling is in need of repair. They've patched it with a board that doesn't quite meet, therefore each morning we were greeted by spiders in the bathroom, not my idea of fun.
From the parking area to the front door there are three different sets of stairs. The bottom one is lit beautifuly, the second two are not lit at all. There are solar lights along the way, NOT ONE OF THEM WORKED. With the late evening and early morning dampness on the steps it was very dangerous walking up them. I was the one who insisted on spending my 50th birthday there and I could tell my husband felt bad because he knew I wasn't enjoying myself. What this did do was get us off the property and out and about to visit the sights, it is a truly beautiful area. Being a Travel Agent, I should have researched it better, I didn't do my homework on my own reservation. I can promise you I won't do that again!
