            It was a good experience overall, with the exception being that I had to call 3 times to reception to request towels. Finally, one hour after I initially requested them, someone brough them over.

                The property is nice. However, our room had an unpleasant odor. Although the room was clean the smell made it seem otherwise. We suspect it was coming from the carpeting or bedspreads used too often without a recent shampooing and dry cleaning.
