This hotel has the potential to be a lovely property, but misses the mark. First, we were put in a strangely bare room with no fireplace, even though we were paying for a deluxe fireplace room. They did move us to another room, but it was certainly not deluxe. The fireplace was nice and the bed was very comfortable, but the furnishings and artwork are sparse and uninviting. The bed linens were wrinkled. It would be an easy fix to add some comfortable seating near the fireplace, an accent table, some paintings scaled to the size of the walls, and unwrinkled sheets.
The landscaping was well maintained, but also lacking in imagination and beauty. The location is convenient, the property is clean, the staff is friendly. It wouldn't take much to make this a stand out hotel, but not as it currently is.
