I'd been looking forward to visiting this property for a number of years. I wasn't disappointed even though I was unhappy about the fact that I found out when I arrived that their spa, gym and pool were under renovation. They have a temporary workout room which was OK under the circumstances. The location is great on the square; service was fine. Dinner and breakfast at the main restaurant were very good. I was upgraded to a park view suite on a top floor and it was a very nice room with excellent amenities. They put nice fruit in the room and the restaurant worked well with me on arranging a dinner tasting leaving out meat and shellfish (which was a bit difficult since virtually every item on the menu had one or the other). During the renovation, they have a car that will take you over to a nearby health club at another top hotel. I look forward to returning after the renovation is complete.
