My boyfriend and I had been tent camping in Erie for the week, and decided to splurge on our last day of vacation by staying here. What a great treat it was! We stayed on the top floor and loved every minute of it. The view of the bay was truly breathtaking. The "club lounge" was always stocked with goodies, and staff members were either in there, or consistently checking to see if anyone needed anything.
The room was very bright and clean, and I was a big fan of the burgundy/navy color scheme. The bathroom was spacious, with a nice shower. The king sized bed was out-of-this-world comfortable, with plenty of plush pillows, sheets, and blankets. I had fun downloading the free App to my iPhone to use as a remote control for the TV (there is a regular remote, but the novelty of changing stations with my phone was fun). The bath robes in the room added to the comfy lounge-around experience we were looking for.
We stayed on site for dinner, and enjoyed sitting on the patio overlooking the bay. Our waiter took good care of us, and the food was pretty good and fairly priced. We also ended up sticking around to have some drinks in the over sized lobby/bar, and it was a very enjoyable atmosphere with an engaging bartender. We didn't use the pool or hot tub, but the glass atrium they were in looked very nice.
The only thing that seemed off was that you were forced to pay for parking in the garage. On top of that, upon check in, a very polite front desk worker told us "we can bill you a flat rate for parking and add it to the cost of your room". We agreed, pulled the car into the garage, looked at the "hourly rates" vs. how long we would be at the hotel (less than 24 hours), and realized we had actually been charged MORE. Our fault for not doing the math I guess, we chose to not argue over a few dollars, but that seemed pretty lame.
