Great views and staff…some issues that are fixable
Views - incredible! Staff - excellent, room/beds - comfy, tv’s - tiny, lighting/switches - odd placement, elevators - slow/broken/need a good cleaning, luggage carts - old and broken/hard to maneuver. On-site breakfast/restaurant was awesome and very welcoming. We were originally given a room with an unclean bathroom, broken vent fan full of dust/grime and the cover was tucked conspicuously under the sink/on floor. We requested to move and had to pay more but did as it was a 4 night stay and we wanted to be comfortable. Each bed had a sheet and a thin fleece which would have been sufficient if it had not been between 40-55 with storm winds and the heat didn’t work. More blankets were provided upon request. The staff was warm, welcoming and helpful. It was the area’s opening weekend so it’s understandable that things were not 100%. While I am disappointed with the cost for early season and issues, we would try it again to be sure.

Cold, cold spring
Went to the front desk to ask for more towels and a blanket. Also mentioned the heat wasn't kicking on. We were then told this was "an air-condition only hotel". WHAT??? how is that even possible. We were freezing in the room.

Disliked the fact there was no heat. Door to balcony was ajar and cold air was coming in. Two staff members at front desk were unfriendly. Cafe staff were amazing. Well organized, fast, friendly and the food was good and hot. Server worked with me with food allergies to ensure I was safe. Great service!
