If you are looking for a place to simply go in and lay your head, then you will be fine. There is a very small reception desk here and a staff that is only semi-helpful. It's not that they aren't nice, they just aren't overly helpful or always available. For example, they were very helpful in helping us make a first round of dinner reservations but then never responded when we emailed to change them.
As others have said, the rooms are modern and clean. The restaurant is very tasty. I would have preferred to have stayed in a true hotel but since we were only there for two nights, it wasn't too much trouble - A restaurant with rooms was sufficient.
Also, they hadn't told us this but they are not open for early check outs on Sunday mornings so we basically had to leave without checking out..just a note of caution and another example of subpar service.
