This hotel was recommended by an Indian friend of mine who raved a out how wonderful this hotel was etc,etc, so we asked our agent to book this hotel. What. My friend neglected to tell me was that she hadn't been here for over 20 years and at that time, this hotel may have been top of the line but no more. No updates or improvements have been made since my friend was here and updating is seriously in order.
First the good parts of the hotel
1. Killer view of the lake and mountains from our room
2. Very peaceful setting, ideal for soothing frayed nerves from maneuvering through the city
3 gorgeous landscaping
4 hotel clean
5 staff super friendly & helpful and go out of their way to greet you.
So you may wonder with all these positives why only give it 3 stars?
1.room decor & lack of basic amenities in the room I.e. luggage rack, chair to sit on other than desk chair, night tables on both sides of bed.
2. Bathroom has only very small shower tub
3 poor storage space for luggage.
