This is now my third week in a row, and 6th time overall staying here. I have had nothing but wonderful experiences!
My first few times here was over a year ago, while they were doing renovations. One room then was a bit out-dated, but still very clean, and was right next to the pool and had a gorgeous balcony over looking it!
Now just a few weeks ago I got to come back, and I am so impressed with the renovations! This hotel is beautiful! They really kept the old/vintage charm, while making it new and beautiful. My first room was 116, I loved this room! It was HUGE! The next time I had a regular size room, and then today I got upgraded to a beautiful suite complete with balcony and fireplace!!
I LOVE the wall paper, carpeting, and colors they decorated with. The beds are always comfortable, the lobby and pool are beautiful, staff is always SUPER nice, especially Sydney!
I also like the area, theres some good restaurants within walking distance and theres a piano bar attached to the hotel that is really cool. They also have another bar/restaurant inside that is really nice and has great service.
