We stayed 4 nights in a King Suite with fireplace for a couples getaway. The room itself was very spacious with a separate sitting area by the fireplace and a Daybed. It was nicely appointed but you could tell it is in need of an update which they are in the process of doing.

We visited the property last June, so I really can't add anything about ongoing renovations at this time. It is a very nice place to stay and the staff is very helpful. Give them a call and I'm sure they'll answer your questions.
