I stayed at this hotel for one night. The staff were really nice and friendly. The room was lovely and the bed was very comfortable but there were two major problems. First the heating unit was ridiculously noisy. Without it on, the room was too cold, With it on, you couldn't sleep because of the noise. The second problem was the shower. The drain was not working fast enough while I tried to get the temperature warm enough for my shower and the hot water ran out before I was done washing my hair (this was NOT a long shower).
I got this room on a Priceline reservation so for the money it was good value but bad heating units are one of my pet peeves and this one was one of the worst.
I had breakfast at the buffet and the omelet was one of the better ones I have had at a buffet in quite a while. The fresh fruit was also excellent and the service was quite good.
