Very Good 8.0 From 324 reviews

Exceptional 10.0
Always a great experience
This hotel is always first class from the decor, cleanliness, service, food, bar service, valet attendants to housekeeping. They always greet me as if we're old friends and every staff member tells me to have a good day as I leave and welcome me back when I return. We enjoyed the time that the hotel food & beverage manager Sven spent with us discussing exciting upcoming upgrades to the rooftop bar area.

Nice location
I was locked out of my room for about 45 minutes due to a battery issue on the door locking mechanism. It was resolved but when I asked for a later check out, they could not accommodate. I thought they could have done a little more to compensate for the early morning inconvenience which made me late for an appointment.

Poor 2.0
Paid $950 for a $150 room, ripped off
This was a last-minute staycation for my wife and I, staying only one night. We decided that we would get one of the nicest and most expensive rooms available as a little treat to us. We live only 45 minutes north so it was a little getaway for the weekend for us. We paid $950 For our room thinking that it would be a real luxury suite. We saw pictures of it prior to booking and of course the pictures made the room look spacious. However, when we arrived it was obvious that it was not spacious and it was not as elegant as we had perceived, especially for $950. When we arrived it was nice that they offered us champagne or water but that was immediately followed by the realization that on top of the $950 they charged us an additional $25 as an amenity fee. That was a bunch of crap but Since we were already committed we decided to just roll with it. Our room was not ready until after 3 o’clock but we stayed by the pool and had some appetizers and a couple of drinks that cost over $100. We had dinner at the hotel restaurant later in the day and did not have a good experience there. I ordered a steak and it was tough. My wife ordered salmon and it was very dry. Of course the food was very expensive and I am not usually one to complain about price for food. We told the Manager about our experience with dinner and at least he split the bill in half to make us feel a little better financially at least. We spent about $1200 for an 18 hours stay at that resort felt ripped off.
