The hotel itself is beautiful and well kept. Very clean and the rooms are spacious. There is a great NEED for coffee makers in the rooms! Made getting ready in the morning without a cup not a great way to start the day. Also, a better quality of toiletries would be appreciated.
The meal I had at the bar was good and prices for food & drinks were very reasonable. All bartenders were very friendly and offered recommendations for things to do in the area. The front desk staff was less than impressive. Both encounters I had with different staff members were lacking friendliness, a smile and recommendations. I called for a late checkout at 10:30am and was given an 11:30am extension. Then received a phone call from the same agent at 11:15am asking if "I was extending my stay". Human error I understand but lack of poise I do not.
Another great amenity of the hotel is the complimentary parking. Parking in a city can be very expensive and this greatly increased the value of the price paid.
All in all I would suggest staying in this hotel as it is truly beautiful.
