This was the well needed respite from Covid. We basically were able to have a sleep over with movies and junk food in luxury which is what my very socially starved 11 year old needed. Having the option to book the pool really was the highlight for her, and my arthritis appreciated the whirl pool. The level of protocols was high and well executed.

If a hotel offers a high price service, it had better live up to that image. When rooms are renovated, the entire room should be renovated, including the rugs, bathroom, etc., and cleaning and dining room staff need to pay more attention to detail, as there was mold around the tub, giant cobwebs above the curtains, the renovated room had frayed carpet the sugar brought to the dining room table had been wet and was hard and had yellowed in the pouches. The food was way overpriced and the coffee is served almost cold. By the second cup, I knew it was not a oversight. Not a good first impression for a hotel of this caliber.

Loved my stay here. Comfortable and relaxing. The staff were professional and helpful. The spa on location was fantastic and I could even book the pool for myself. It was a great experience. I highly recommend.
