The property is beautiful. The location requires a train ride/bus ride or a complimentary car into town, but it's worth it. As for food nearby, three blocks away on 43 is a chinese restaurant not worth mentioning and two blocks walk toward town is the Old Spaghetti Factory(again, not a recommendation).
The complimentary breakfast is not anything to speak of. Its available and free. The room was clean, comfortable and spacious. BIg bathroom, full robes and a nice bathtub. Nice balcony access(we were hillside) was a nice way to end the day. Wifi was fast and glitch-free.
The spa is absolutely amazing and what makes this experience worth the down-side of the location. Its got a huge selection of exercise machines...I think a full room for classes and a great hot tub, sauna and steam room. The men's steam room was out of order when I stayed, but it didn't matter, it was 107 degrees during the day the week we stayed. Steam room not necessary.
