This place is rather too pretentious for comfort. It's like a shrine to the Trapp Family, who - although being Austrian - soon learned that the way to succeed in the USA is through shameless self promotion. And good luck to them.
As expected, we found it a nice comfortable hotel, with a warm and highly professional welcome from Tim at reception. Our Premier Room was OK but not remarkable, and there were plenty of signs of lack of maintenance. For example, at night the a/c would not switch off, and there were no maintenance people on duty, so they sent the security guard who said that there was always trouble with the a/c, and switched it off "at the computer". And does nobody ever clean the outside? The private terrace was covered with grass and weed cuttings, there were cobwebs round the door frame. Everywhere, terraces and walkways had not been swept for weeks.
And it was something of a surprise to find that the carpark was a muddy patch across the road - could they not afford to put hardtop on it?
