Room too hot.
Everything was fine except room temperature control. The heat could not be turned off, small room w would no be opened since loud Friday night music and revelry went on toll after 12. Talked to frond desk about heat and they said other rooms had complained and they would get on it. Next nigh the same thing. Way too hot in the rooms and no way to control it.

Very nice hotel with excellent rooms and hot, hot showers. Friendly lounge to hang out if there's an early arrival. Restaurant was excellent - delicious flavors.

Simply amazing and most memorable! We had the family apartment with the kitchen. All of us were together and yet, had the space!

We stayed here for two nights on our honeymoon. Everyone working at this hotel are lovely and very helpful. We got an upgrade with a bigger room and champagne since they knew we were on our honeymoon. The lobby with the fireplace and sofas is so cozy. The breakfast and afternoon soup buffet are delicious. I love that everyone walks around in socks (you must leave your dirty boots at the front door). The room was great and the bed was very comfortable. Would highly recommend.
