Although I cannot comment on value-for-price (we were part of a wedding party, so our room was discounted), I can say that the stay is comfortable, staff very helpful, and overall facilities offer more than your regular hotel.
Everything I'm about to say has been previously mentioned by other reviewers, but I'll go through it again:
PROS: Beds are comfortable, room spacious, coffee maker in room with ceramic mugs (not paper), walking trails and other amenities for active guests (nice gym, tennis courts, etc), pretty decor in the lobby.Breakfast was pretty good as well with a number of choices. Though we did not get to use it, the bar area looked very nice and inviting as well.
CONS: The bathroom, though clean is extremely small. Our bathroom at home is small, so when I travel I like to experience a larger bathroom. This is the first time I've been in a hotel where the bathroom was actually smaller than ours. It's a one-person-at- a-time bathroom - a second person could not even squeeze in if they tried. You have enough room just to open the door and step in. Also, if given the choice, I would prefer a hotel closer to the downtown area. However, the hotel does run shuttles to downtown quite often, so if you prefer to stay somewhere to enjoy the outdoor amenities, then this may not bother you.
My last comment is that this hotel is much larger than what we usually prefer as we tend to stay in bed and breakfasts. However, I can see its appeal to some who may be looking for a hotel near, but not in the city.
