Just an amazing place to stay. So beautiful, friendly staff and minutes from a great restaurant and historical park. Try the meditation room, sounds of the river and birds chirping make it a natural sound for your practice.

The room is in general good. One thing that's super bad for my experience that I have to complain about is that the heater in the room was not working and the guest service didn’t care about our experience and we froze all night and almost caught cold. On the night of Feb 14, it was raining, and it was cold outside. I set the temperature to the highest, but there was very little hot air coming out of the heater, so the room was freezing. I texted guest service and replied with an ask to use an extra blanket to stay warm, it doesn't make any sense, I couldn't get a warm room for $730 on valentines' day? I replied back to ask for a fix or change of room, but got replied by an automatic message saying it's past service time (8pm ) . So we didn't get the heater fixed and had to bear with the coldness all night. The next morning, my partner and I almost got a cold. I paid $730 for a night on valentines day and all I wanted was a comfortable warm night, and I couldn’t get it and was asked to use an extra blanket to stay warm? That’s the worst experience I have ever had.
