We stayed at this hotel for two nights. Overall the stay was very nice. However, there were a few things in particular that I need to point out.
We were assigned a non-smoking room on the fifth floor for our first night. Once in our room for a few hours we smelled cigarette smoke which we thought was coming from the floor below. At 6 am, we finally woke up, no longer able to endure the horrible smoke smell. We went downstairs to complain and the friendly staff informed us that one wing of the fifth floor is smoking while the other side, which we were assigned to, was non-smoking. Our room happened to be two doors down from the smoking side. Do not allow them to give you a room on the fifth floor unless you are willing to tolerate the strong smell of smoke throughout your stay. We were moved to the third floor and this totally alleviated the problem. They also offered us free breakfast due to the inconvenience.
The pool looked a lot bigger in the website pictures. We got in just an hour before it was due to close and it was certainly in need of a skimming.
The rooms were extremely large, very clean and spacious. Our room had a fridge, microwave and free internet. The breakfast was fantastic. Omelettes cooked to order with lots of other food choices. Everything was fresh and the buffet was well maintained. The coffee was one of the best cups I've had in a long time. Very impressed with the coffee. The staff is very friendly and accommodating.
And finally, a hotel with REAL up to standard exercise equipment! High performance, exercise machines were a huge plus! Most hotels list that they have an exercise room only to find a stretching chair and maybe a low quality half broken bicycle. Not the case with this hotel. I would give the spa/exercise room five stars if it wasn't for the dirty pool and sauna.
I would stay here again without a doubt.
