I have very mixed feelings about this place. My wife and I stayed here last year, and decided to give it another try. Very fancy-looking, Still the same musty smell as you walk in the lobby, and a behind-the-desk manager who doesn’t smile or provide eye-contact, sent up warning flags. He was somewhat redeemed by introducing himself by first name with a genuine handshake, but then he immediately returned to glaring at his screen, which he seemed to prefer.
Walking up to a top floor room, it was clear the place was not being well-cared for: candy wrappers and a toothpick on the hallway floor. (The toothpick was still there when we left on Monday.) Clearly understaffed. It seemed like one very nice, cooperative, overworked maid was responsible for all the rooms on several floors. The room is roomy, but lacks any personality or decor, and was hot; A/C/ was off, the bedspread looked slept on, and the refrigerator unplugged. We’ll see.
The restaurant (more bar than anything else) offered little variety, and no one seemed to understand “gluten-free;” we did not stay to eat there. Sat. breakfast had nice fresh fruit. Not so on Sun. or Mon; buffet service was great, polite, eager to help.
I have not received a follow-up receipt to include Mon. a.m. breakfast charge.
Very nice exterior swimming pool & health club: Opens very late on weekends, when we wanted to work out early. And closes if there’s a cloud on the horizon, so realistically, use is very limited.
Overall experience was ”okay,” but not sure I’d stay there again. It’s pretty expensive mediocrity.
