From the rooms, to the location, to the food, this hotel is the place to stay. The staff is incredible and I would definately stay here again. I only wish I could have attended one of the evening socials!
Second time I've stayed here for 6 plus days.
Pros: The beds are comfortable and the linens are above average quality. There is a kitchen. Loved it. So much more convenient and economical to be able to prepare my own food. The overall look and feel of the property is good but there are areas that need attention.
Cons: My dishwasher didn't work so I reported that. They said they would contact engineering. I got back that evening and while all my dishes were cleaned the dishwasher still didn't work. Then I didn't get housekeeping the next day so at this point I'm just frustrated. I had to contact to ask if I could please get housekeeping. They said yes and while beds were made and towels replaced not much else was done. And my dishes were still dirty.
There are better options in the area and certainly for less money even if you prefer a kitchen.
