We very much enjoyed our family visit to the hotel.
Upon arrival, our assigned 2-bedroom suite had an unpleasant cat odor, so upon request we were immediately given a room that was free of any unpleasantness. I understand the nature of hotels that are pet-friendly, however, I feel it is the property’s responsibility to sufficiently deodorize following any pet occupation, so that the subsequent guests receive a better experience.
Nevertheless, the second room was fine a met all our needs. It was clean, well-appointed and quiet (except for the loudest disposal we have ever had/heard … we likened it to a rocket ship takeoff, as it literally shook the sink and counter). Oddly enough, the room lacked an ottoman for the chair, which was present in our original room. I probably could have requested one, but didn’t. It seems strange that the amenities vary between identical suites.
The morning breakfast, while hectic, was well stocked and the staff made sure items were replaced quickly. We did not eat with the masses, as we chose to bring the meal back to our suite, which was very nice.
Workout facilities were nice, too, with a good mix of equipment that was in perfect working order.
The location of the hotel is at the south end of the city, but it is an easy walk. We took the lovely river walk to the Saturday market and had a nice time. Yes, hotel parking is at a premium, but it is very convenient and enables you to get to your vehicle without having to walk to and fro in the (frequent) rain.
Overall, it was a nice stay and I would not hesitate to stay here again.
