This was our second time to stay in this charming hotel. We were not disappointed as it has been remodeled and some new rooms have been added. We treated ourselves to one of these new rooms--a suit--a luxury we did not regret. Spacious and comfortable, the room had beautiful views, a most comfortable bed (especially important with my wife's bad back), a lovely modern bathroom. The two large comfy reading chairs could have used some more light for reading and the modern bathroom could use a little more light over the mirror. There is an interesting surprise in this room: a neon light band installed in a ceiling valence with a control panel to program special effects in many colors and variations of timing. Since we are familiar with light sculpture as artworks, we found this to be more interesting and fun than expected. It does not, of course, have to be activated unless you want it for atmosphere or entertainment.
The hotel also has original artworks on its walls in the entry and dining area that add to the ambiance and a classy feeling. In November, the hot tub was being re-done, adding changing rooms and other improvements, so we didn't get to experience it this time. We highly recommend this hotel. We'll go again.
