This hotel has very clean, and well decorated suites. I stayed in the Majestic Suite and read reviews prior to booking this hotel. Chief complaints were about the noise from the adjacent restaurant/bistro. This restaurant has outside seating and the noise from the guests is very very loud. We stayed on a Friday and Saturday. Friday the noise was bearable. Saturday, the noise was terribly loud that we didnt sleep until about 1:30am. (You could actually hear conversations) This angered me slightly due to the fact that upon booking I expressed my concern for the noise and the reservationist stated that she recommended the Majestic Suite if funds werent an issue. At $250.00/night I feel the noise is unacceptable. We also had a family in the room next to our suite on Saturday night and could hear banging on the walls and running throughout the floorplan. My husband and I joked that we could expect noise at the Econo Lodge but not in a suite for $250.00 a night.
Enough of the negatives, the hotel staff was wonderful and very polite.Location was great and parking was never an issue. We had a young male check us in and he was very polite and attentive. The decor of the suite was gorgeous and the king sized bed was very comfortable. The snacks provided for breakfast was a nice treat to see when arriving back from a long day in town, however thought a mini-bar with softdrinks would be nice as well(which is not provided). The Suite was very very clean.
Overall, I feel the hotel is a great place to stay if you don't mind the noise issue. Keep in mind that when I first read reviews about the noise, I thought it would be bearable and maybe some folks are just picky, however, it couldnt have been louder other than sitting with the patrons at the Bistro. My husband and I were very irrate, but feel that because of the quality of the suite it wasn't worth complaining to staff. Which by the way, we heard great things about the Blue Parrot Bistro and we ate dinner there on Friday. It was very expensive and they gave very small portions. Please read menu on the door before deciding. It looks good but the staff was rude, portions small and very expensive.
One small suggestion, robes as well in the bathroom.
