I booked two rooms for seven nights for my family who were in town from the UK. From the moment we met Annette P. to go over our plans we knew we were in good hands. Excellent staff that included, George, lois and others whose names (to my shame) escape me.
We used the newly decorated function rooms to easily seat 90 guest for a meet and greet on Friday night followed by a formal catered dinner on Saturday. The staff could not do enough for us with regards to setting up, supplying dance floor, coffee etc.
The breakfast did not get boring even after seven nights. There was enough variety to suit 4, 12, 18 and 30+ year olds.
Internet service was good and strong, which is important with all of the adults having two devices. Two good PC's near the lobby made connection and printing of flyers and programs a breeze. Also good and varied TV channels in the rooms. We booked early and were able to secure a fridge in the room.
What makes this review hard to write is that I am a diehard Hilton Honnors gold and HGVC Elite member.
I will certainly be spreading the word about the service that we received at this location.
