We stayed from 7/3 - 7/8 in a non-smoking room with a hot tub. The hotel was beautiful both inside and out. Our room was amazing and I was really happy with it but it was not without a couple of problems. The hotel was clean but the moisture from the hot tub was in the carpet from being used time and time again and as you can imagine, it smelled like a musty basement. In fact, I found it hard to breathe. We bought a scented candle which helped slightly but found if we turned the air conditioner up all the way to the coldest setting, it helped lots. In fact, I didn't even notice it then. Since we were there during a heat wave that was fine but I don't know what I'd do if it were in the middle of winter. (The air conditioner did not have any way to adjust the direction of the air (the vents were fixed in place) so if you are on the left side, you froze but if you were on the right side you had no/little air flow since it blew out slightly and up.) Across from this hot tub was an electric/gas (not sure which but not a wood/real one) and it was beautiful and threw some heat so naturally we didn't keep it on but thought I would mention it because I thought it was so romantic to be in a hot tub with your spouse watching the fireplace. This is petty I know but it drove me crazy. We wanted to watch TV but there was no kind of a guide of what is on and when we finally did find something to watch, this crazy advertising or whatever it is pops out the left side of the picture and stays a few seconds as well as one dropping down from the top, then disappears for awhile just to do it again and again throughout the show. It blocks parts of the picture and was just so annoying. I don't want it to seem like this was a bad room/hotel. It wasn't. It was beautiful, rooms were clean, housekeeping staff are fantastic, we were on the road side of the hotel and we weren't bothered by traffic at all, easy to get to Philly without the Philly prices, lots of shopping and eating places nearby. I would stay here again (in summer), I'd just bring my own fan and some air spray.
