My wife and I stayed at Griffin Gate looking for a relaxing spa weekend. The hotel delivered on many counts. The spa is terrific. A wonderful place to relax and get a good massage. The atmosphere is perfect.
We liked the hotel, but must admit that the rooms are smaller than we expect at a hotel that prides itself on being a resort, and the bathrooms are ridiculously small. Also, there is no sound buffering between rooms. You will have no difficulty hearing your neighbors.
It's also worth nothing that the hotel clearly caters itself to smaller sized conventions and large meetings. Thus, don't be surprised if the place is over-run with partyers. During our stay, there was a noisy collection of evangelical church women (and a rude and nasty bunch they were, too). Before you book, you might want to find out what large grooups will be in the facility at the same time.
The restaurant, JW Steakhouse, is far better than the usual hotel restaurant, with a respectable wine list. We enjoyed eating there. A tad on the expensive side, but the same quality you would find at Morton's or Ruth's Chris (again -- the bar next door can be noisy and the lighting is a little harsh).
All in all, a positive experience.
