My husband and I enjoyed a quick two-night getaway here in August. Our room was amazing with a fireplace and a deck overlooking Frenchman's Bay. Also two flat-screen TVs and a fridge. The bathroom vanity with two sinks was nice too so we could spread out all our things. The radio was really good quality sound, too. Not sure if it was a Bose but sounded like one. We also sat by the outdoor pool and swam in the indoor pool, plus relaxed in the indoor hot tub after our hike in the park. The highlight of our stay was pianist Bill Trowell, who plays six nights a week in the Great Room of the hotel, where you can also get drinks and food. We enjoyed a glass of wine and a delicious piece of Blueberry Pie while listening to the piano music. Bill takes requests and he can play virtually any type of piano music. It was so much fun and he is such a great performer! It's amazing that he plays six nights a week, and evidently has done so for 18 years! A real treat. I will definitely come back to this hotel. The manager, Jim Ash, personally hosts a wine and cheese welcome reception three nights a week which is another added bonus at this property.
