I have stayed at this property twice in the last month for work. The hotel, while older, is absolutely beautiful.
The front desk staff were very accommodating and friendly. The place is going through a decor overhaul (thought you wouldn't know it unless you spoke to someone who has been there for the transformation). Decor is somewhat modern, but very warm and elegant.
The owner has partnered with a local private massage therapist (Kathy) and her colleague (Erica) who offer massages onsite for a great rate - perfect to end a stressful week of work while on business travel.
The hotel is situated directly across from an upscale mall with great stores and restaurants like PF Changs, The Rail, etc. The on-site restaurant Beau's is very different from what you would expect in a hotel as well.
GREAT happy hour, live, tasteful music on Thursdays, and fabulous food. Outside of the bar, the service is somewhat slow when ordering off the menu at dinner, I found. On Tuesdays, they have "retail wine night," meaning, you pay their price for a glass or bottle of wine - it was a real buy!
Their breakfast, both from menu and off the buffet (smoked salmon, fresh berries, in addition to all of the typical fare) was a great bargain and delicious and fresh each day. The wait staff in the mornings, especially the host (I don't recall his name) were great and expeditious.
If you have an opportunity to stay, I recommend that you do! This place is the whole package. I loved it and won't stay anywhere else when I go back!
