Went here on an overnighter seminar. The place is great, with December cool winds sweeping along the corridors and hallways. Speaking of hallways, the ones on the room floors are open air, allowing you a view outside. I wonder how this arrangement turns out during storms with sideways rain.
The room was neat, but rather spartan. Carpeting would have changed the room’s character immensely, but I guess that would be too much to ask. There are no master switches bedside, so if you get sleepy watching the tivo and the lights happen to be on, youd have to summon the will to get up and go to the switch; or, you could try sleeping with lights on for a change. One issue we had was with the airconditioning. It constantly swung between hot and too cold.
We were booked a room on the third floor, so we only got to see snippets of the lake in the balcony. A room on the upper floors would have provided a much better view.
Theres a small pool behind the hotel, but no one dared take a dip in this cold weather.
Buffet meals are served at the C2 restaurant at the ground floor. I figure about 6-8 dishes by way of variety. For some reason the food was so-so during dinner but was great during breakfast and lunch.
Parking is ample; there are slots in front of the hotel and more in the basement.
I guess I expected way too much going into this hotel, mostly basing my expectations on the façade. But its still a good hotel and I wouldn’t mind coming back.
