9.4.Exceptional.
  • 8.0.Very Good

    My experience was great! The service and staff were friendly and welcoming. However, when it came to check out, I received a call from front desk asking for my credit card to pay for the bottle of wine and beer I took. Which I did not take or even touch. Everything was there when my daughter and I left the room. I think, asking me if I TOOK a bottle of wine and beer, instead of instantly assuming I took the wine and beer bottles, would have been appreciated.

    Great place to stay!!

    This hotel was absolutely beautiful! The lobby was fully decorated for Christmas, so glad we got to see it! The room was great, bed was comfortable and the room was very dark and quiet and guest services were friendly. The breakfast had a wide range of selection to choose from too. We will definitely go back!!
