My husband and I LOVED this property! The room was very nice and had an amazing view of the lake and pier. It was within walking distance of everything we were looking to do. If there is an option to add breakfast, DO IT! We loved ordering room service breakfast every morning and enjoying the view from our room.

I arrived in a cab. The cab driver took my luggage out. The doorman/bellhop was standing by the door. He never spoke, he just looked at me. I needed to still pay so I went imside the cab.When done, my luggage was laying down on the ground. I looked at the bellhop and he just opened the door. No hello or help. I picked my bags up and checked in. I booked the fabulous room with Lake view. Please go to the website for reference. The desk was old and beat literally looked like someone took a hammer to the top. The desk on both sides were scratched up like someone rolled it around before placing it in the room. The bed was extremely hard. Not exaggerating.The sofa bench the goes around the bed to window was literally brown on top from ppl leaning over to look out the window. The couch had a dip I assume from ppl sleeping on it. A light fixture in the pics was supposed to come from the ceiling to the desk. That was mysteriously gone with the holes left in the desk and was replaced with a small lamp but you could clearly see the holes. The other light fixture near the window was suppsed to have 12 lights hanging. Mine had 5. Where a fridge was supposed to be in the room they had bolted it close with dry wall hanging out the sides. The bathroom was small 4x4. I moved to a diff room and the samething...a headache to leave and i dont have enough characters to explain the rest. I went to the Peninsula nextday

Super elegant vibe, beautiful and great for pictures! Room was nice and cozy with a lovely city view. Could use some new plumbing as the toilet ran continuously and with bad pressure. Also could use better shower pressure and water drainage as they are standup stone shower. But room was clean and lovely and staff was super friendly and very helpful with whatever you wanted just a call away. Would most definitely stay here again!!

No fridge in room, and the door that usually covered the fridge cabinet was hanging off. The bathroom products were messy as if already used. Staff was not as friendly at midnight and dismissive.
