The resort is very nice - great location, amenities, cleanliness, facilities, and staff in general. My only issue is that upon arrival at 10pm, after an all day journey, I asked the desk clerk to be sure I was in a quiet room for my 4-night stay. She indicated that although my room was facing the street, it would be quiet and she could only switch the room if I was staying for only 1 night. She couldn’t do it for the 4-night stay that I had booked. Well, I didn’t sleep that night because the room was right on the main road with loud traffic all night. I unhappily went downstairs at 7am with my bags packed and told them that I was checking out unless they switched my room. My room was reluctantly switched. No compensation was offered for my issue, but rather I was told they would do it at no charge, and that comment further angered me. Regardless, I stayed and the next 3 nights were fine. I just wish I didn’t have to go through that ordeal to begin with and the clerk who checked me in was more accommodating- she obviously could have been since they were able to less than 12 hours later.

Nice hotel. Every staff member we encountered was pleasant and helpful. There is valet upon arrival. It seemed like every time we turned around, there was a staff member there ready to assist. Check in was a breeze. Our luggage was delivered to our room promptly. All around a delightful stay.
