The hotel was open, friendly, and met all our needs. Really well designed, and the restaurant was excellent. I wish to call out front desk staff for going above and beyond. I would only suggest two minor additions to the room: i) hot water suitable for tea and ii) more waste receptacles in the larger suites.
