DO NOT STAY HERE. I kept my two suitcases behind the front desk for about 8 hours on the day that I checked out before I took a car to the airport. (They do not have a luggage room.) I had luggage locks on both suitcases. When I returned to pick up my bags, one luggage lock was missing, and the other had been broken off. I had nothing valuable in the suitcases, and nothing (from what I can tell) was taken. I called the hotel management, and they said they asked their employees if they did it. Since all the employees denied breaking into the suitcases, they said it didn't happen. What was otherwise an ok stay was ruined by this experience.

Beautiful surroundings. It used to be a very peaceful setting. Now the hotel caters more to parties and events. No peace and quiet and often loud music until midnight!
