My wife and I stayed for one night june 21. First I had to change my reservation to a larger room the day before because my wife coming along was a last minute thing. This was accomidated with no problems at all, which was somewhat of a surprise considering when I made the change I did it through the hotels website and did not speak to anyone at the property until check in. The bathroom was considerably more spacious than most hotal bathrooms tend to be. The granite counter tops and textured tile floor were very nice high end touches. Plenty of extra towels and t.p. were on hand on shelves under the counter. The room was clean and the bathroom spotless. Only slight downside was a small chip in the tub, but we are talking one paint chip a mere one third the size of a penny. Very much nothing to cause concern. The pool was slightly over chlorinated, but very slightly at that. Not enough to cause any eye discomfort. It is relatively small but quite nice. I did not try the hot tub. The corridors and elevators were clean. The tile in the lobby and downstairs areas positively gleamed. The breakfast was certainly a big improvement on the typical "continental breakfast" that was attended to by a very friendly and helpful Grandmotherly like lady.
The only downside to my stay was it seems the cleaning staff are not able to read. I went down for breakfast and to use the business center while my wife slept in. I placed the do not disturb card in the card key slot on the door before I left. On my return, my wife informed me that while she was in the bathroom somebody opened the door to the room.
I am assuming the cleaning staff could not read any of the languages printed on the do not disturb card by the simple fact that it is the only possible explanation I would find acceptable for ignoring it in the first place.
What if one of us had been getting dressed at the time? I can think of several other more embarassing possibilities.
Since people check out at different times it seems a simple enough matter for the hotel desk to give a list of rooms to the cleaning staff and update it every hour or so to ensure that rooms still occupied are left undisturbed.
Overall I am still quite satisfied with my stay and would not hesitate to stay at this hotel again
