It was a little tricky to get to because the GPS route took us to a road under construction at the entrance to the hotel. We arrived late after a long work day and four hour drive, so we chose to grab a quick bite at the hotel. We walked through the bar to get to the restaurant, but found the dinner fare a little too much and pricey for a 9pm meal. We chose the bar to order something quick and light. Neither of these options worked. Even though there were only 6 people in the bar, it took almost 15 minutes to get a menu and a drink. After another 15 minutes I snagged what I perceived as a manager walking by to get some service. Frustration was mounting because we had observed 3 servers crowded around a computer screen for a long time apparently trying to figure out how to enter things or perhaps place an order. Food choices are limited, but appropriately priced. I would suggest they open their menu a little to allow for wings, wraps or flatbread pizza. Apologies were made and all was good, however offering a complimentary drink refill might have helped too. Beautiful property, only 2 blocks from Park Avenue where shopping, restaurants and bars abound. Stunning pool deck and wonderful new exercise equipment. This is an incredible property with interesting art work with a story behind it and good meeting space for reasonably sized groups. Lots of individual seating areas. Bed was very comfortable too. This property needs to work out a few bugs with the training of the staff, but I would definitely stay here again and you should give it a try.
