When booking room I viewed it online and stated that the room appeared dark and gloomy. Was assured this was just the picture and that it had full lake and mountain views, and that it was a quiet room as only 3 on this floor level. At check-in was again told full lake views. Reality was that this room was very dark, little sunlight came in. Lake and mountain views exist only if you walk up to the window and look out, and even then view is obscured by a dormer roof that stick out. Also, although only 3 rooms on this floor, it is the transfer floor for back buildiing so it gets a lot of traffic, and family traffic at that - kids running up and down crossover hallway. What they didnt' say was the elevator is immediately outside the door, and the bed against this wall so you literally have people and kids talking, yelling etc 5 feet from your pillow.
The room rate equated to a level charged by 5 star hotels and yet you have to pay for internet service, the breakfast is buffet only which is over $20 PP so if you just want coffee and a donut you are out of luck.
When I spoke to management about how I questioned the room and the answers given by the staff, I received a sorry must be a training issue response and that was it.
Very friendly staff, nice location but way way way overpriced for the level of rooms. etc.
