We ordered delicious room service. The only "cons" are bugs in the room at night ..I couldn't figure out how they were getting in! Also the bed...

We had an incredible stay. The staff was friendly, anticipated our every need and paid close attention to detail. Our room was an oasis--had we not been there to see Northern California the only time we would have left would have been to have a glass of wine by the amazing courtyard fire place.
