    Fabulous Hotel

    The room was beautiful, comfortable, clean and quiet. We only were there for 1 night and wish we could have stayed longer. The staff was so helpful, I had a rental car and the fellow came out to my car, sat with me and showed me step by step of where to go to get parked and back to the hotel. When we arrived back our check in was quick and easy and our bags had already been placed in our room. We also ate dinner at the cafe restaurant - was quite delicious.
