Overall, it was a good trip. As always, the hotel room was exceptional clean and the hotel employees were very friendly. The housekeepers are the friendliest of any hotel we have stayed. The front desk is always a pleasure from check-in to check-out. Even to buzz you out the gate when you forget your card. That is big deal!!!
It must have been a very busy weekend. I've never seen the hotel run out of breakfast food. Both Saturday and Sunday were a challenge for seating. And forget the OJ, they were out. (How did that happen???) Sunday, they actually ran out of bacon, pancakes, OJ and grits (Yes, we like grits!!!) We did show up late but within breakfast hours. But the omelets were fantastic so that balanced out the shortcomings.
And no one can complain when you role back in from a fun day in the city to be greeted by a bountiful manager's reception that is sure to put a smile on your face. We always enjoy the bartenders and how happy the seem to be to see returning patrons. We only wish the restaurant could get it together. Sad to say that even a simple meal with a few salads and an appetizer seemed to be a challenge. We decided to order pizza the next night to prevent any challenges from the restaurant. I truly believe that the entire menu is frozen and microwaved. But no hotel is perfect. I would say skip the the restaurant. Enjoy the clean rooms, the very friendly staff, the warm indoor pool and the generous manager's reception.
Thanks for a great New Year's!!!
Only real complaint: Would it be possible to provide some level of water pressure in the bathroom sink??? We've noticed this to be a common issue in the rooms. We had more pressure in our bar sink than in the bathroom.
