“Great grounds,even better beds!!”
Reviewed September 14, 2013

I spent a week there. The hotel sits on an amazing plot of land, next to a golf course. Not far from the town's centre. The staff is polite and friendly. The rooms are a bit small but they have the Best beds I have ever slept in!!!!! Honestly!! Pool area is nothing great, could use a touch of a landscape designer. The steakhouse restaurant, as in any Marriott hotel, was very good with great steaks. The breakfast buffet had the best fruit variety I have seen.
Overall a very pleasant stay.

Beautiful property with a Mansion to tour if you have the time. The grounds were gorgeous however there was a rather rambunctious group that no-one seemed to want to quiet down! The rooms were beautifully kept and the views nice. The food in the main restaurant was wonderful and the deserts to die for! Everyone was professional and kind which always makes a stay more pleasurable.

Room Tip: High room outside view is the quietest!

We had a wonderful weekend!! We were greeted by a very nice bellman and check in was fast and welcoming. Our large and well decorated room was clean and comfortable with a small balcony. The bed was perfect. Everyone in this hotel did their best to make our stay comfortable and enjoyable. We will definitely be back!

Our party of four ate in the dining room, our 20+ year veteran waitress, Darleen, was incredible! She was so knowledgable of the menu and steered us to an amazing meal. Teasing us just enough into ordering what she called "the best thing on the menu", and boy was she right. Their BUTTER POUND CAKE WITH WARM BOURBON SAUCE was far and away the best dessert I've ever put in my mouth. Get it, you won't be sorry!

Our room, the spa, and golf course were all wonderful. The staff went above and beyond even after our stay was over. While unpacking my bags after we returned home, I discovered that I had left all of my prescription medication behind at the hotel. I called to tell them and they checked with housekeeping, found my medications and Fed-Exed them overnight to me at no charge. WOW! What a wonderful weekend get-away, we'll definitely stay with them again.

This was by far one of the nicest, friendliest hotels I've ever had the pleasure of spending the night at. The grounds are beautiful and if you play golf, that's a bonus. The room was exceptionally clean, very nice décor and all the staff were helpful and polite. Was actually worried the rate I was quoted was a huge mistake. The bed was lush and exactly what we needed after a day on the road.

arrived late in the evening on Saturday of Labor Day - about 10:30pm as a wedding was departing and still rec'd great service from the valet & bellman (they were very busy). Was offered a bottled water upon arrival, front desk was outstanding with referring things to do (HINT: research the area as there is not a concierge & the desk was busy so took us a few times to get answers).

room was nice - large enough for 2 ppl in a King, enough room to put down a pallet if you need to on the floor for kids. bathroom was tiny - no more than one person. great shower though & nice pressure for my long hair.

pool - indoor & outdoor was very nice. fire pit & hot tub near each other. there was no pool side service, but there was a tiki bar and we did spend $10 per drink that was yummy & actually worth the price.

HINT: do not get a room by the elevators - 3 hallways come together & it can get very loud!

spa looked nice, but we didn't use it.

overall - i would stay here again if i was in the area.

What a wonderful place to stay. We came into town for a wedding that was being held at this location. Upon our arrival we were greeted by the bellhop with a very friendly hello and welcome! We immediately felt right at home. Our room was clean and very nicely decorated. The room had a gel mattress that was heavenly to sleep on. (I am now buying one for my home) The grounds are lovely, although we did not have time to use the pool or spa it looked very nice. Everyone at the hotel was very helpful and pleasant. We are now planning a trip back for The Rolex in the spring and will definitely stay at this hotel!!!
