Of course you see what a place looks like these days with internet bookings, but, this really was "WOW" when we arrived, especially because we are art lovers, hence it took us twice as long to get to our room, which was also "wow" as we stopped to look at all the beautiful pieces of art along the long and exquiste hall ways or the nooks along the way.
Although this hotel is on the 4o5 highway, and shops across the road and car dealerships next door, once your inside this buiding, you only feel as though your in a gallery, museum or even a castle somwhere in Europe,
The staff are all fantastic, a quick check in and out, the night we were there they had "happy hour" in the bar which also included half price appetizers between 4 and 7pm. which of course we took advantage of, the ambience was too good to pass up.
The courtyard was really pretty, Although we did not swim I dipped my toes in the pool and spa, both were heated to levels that would have been good to take advantage of, in this cooler weather.
Breakfast was of a fair variety, with fruit, cereals, and hot food toast, and cakes and pastries all available, it is always nice to have a breakfast option in a hotel to get you up and going first thing in the morning.
Hope you enjoy your stay as much as we did, the beds are great the bathroom a good size and such nice furnishings, and all though the hotel is next to the freeway, we really had to strain to hear any traffic noise. Oh, and you can get a really good pizza across the road I forget the name of the resturant, but, it's the only Italian one there, also great and friendly service too.
