I was rob at this hotel ! I requested have requested at the front desk during my check in to change my method of payment from the one I have on file with Expedia, the next morning after the checking I notes they used the credit card that was on file and not the new one I provided. When I check on the new credit card I find all kind of weird transactions, this credit car was only used one time since it was new and that only time was at the hotel ! I open a report with the police since the staff did not offer any help and acted all defensive when I talk to them. To me is all a scam and probably not the first time it happens. Very bad experience!

The hard wood floors were beautiful but we could have used a small rug to wipe feet off before bed. I would definitely stay again. The fireplace was beautiful.
