My husband surprised me with a weekend at Bella Vista Suites for our anniversary. The room was very nice, spacious and clean. The surprise breakfast basket outside our door was a nice treat as was the bottle of champange waiting for us. We did a couples massage in the spa and it was very nice. They took good care of us. He had a carriage ride scheduled thru town. It was ok - not great but it was ok.
Everywhere you go in the hotel there are signs advertising their "piano bar". Part of the reason my husband booked the hotel was because of the piano bar. He's been to a few in the past and thought it would be fun to go with me. This is not a piano bar... this is a keyboard bar. The entertainment for the weekend was bad, cheesy, cruise ship-like entertainment. She sang a song and then flipped thru her song book for 5 minutes trying to find what she wanted to sing next. I think I heard 3 Bette Midler songs repeated throughout most of it. Don't get me wrong, she was somewhat entertaining, but nothing that would warrant the advertising. I will say that there was an older crowd in the bar Saturday night that seemed to know/enjoy the music. Friday night was a younger (30's) group and she couldn't hold anyone's attention. Advertise it as a lounge with entertainment on weekends and you'll do fine. Don't advertise it as a piano bar because it doesn't even come close to that.
Overall it was a good stay. We would go back and plan our entertainment for elsewhere. We did have an issue at checkout with our bill. My husband had prepaid most of the charges and then they wanted to charge him again so make sure you check your bill as opposed to just leaving your keys in the room like at many hotels.
