Grand, but could be Grander
Excellent value for the amenities provided. My rating would have been higher except for a few issues that could have been easily avoided. The first issue was that there was a long wait at check-in. Come to find out that they only had one person on when they usually have two, So the front desk person was busily answering calls from guests, booking room reservations, handling calls for events, and dealing with maintenance issues between signing guests in. She was very pleasant considering all that she was dealing with and the volume of guests arriving in our group. Another issue was that the room key (card) didn’t always work at the entrance door closest to my room. So I would have to walk around the building to find a door that would work. And then one night the key stopped working altogether. The desk clerk reprogrammed the key very quickly, as if she had done many more. This is an older property that has been well maintained but needs additional work. The whirlpool wasn’t working for instance. A little better management would also help to ensure sufficient staffing when there is a high volume of guests checking in. Staff was very friendly.

One Run Down Room in Nice Hotel
The hotel has recently been renovated and the public areas were nice. My room was a dump. But I had booked a room that was supposed to be blocked and they were sold out for the night so I may just have been in a room that shouldn't have been used and the rest are updated. Mine was a Jacuzzi suite but I had booked just a regular room. Breakfast was fine, but you could order omelettes and other food which looked amazing for a charge. Great indoor pool and hot tub area

Close but needs work
Staff was friendly and helpful the bright spot. Facilities were dated a little paint here, a new toilet seat there, and a warm indoor pool would have made a huge difference. Continental breakfast was a deal breaker we won't be back because this hotel has a restaurant so there breakfast was pathetic either offer a reasonable breakfast or don't offer anything hot tub was great and although I don't use the gym it looked good. A few changes and this could have been a winner
