    I think that the property is handling the Covid restrictions/accommodations well. There was a good variety of grab and go breakfast items. Was a bit of a bummer, not to have daily housekeeping (that's one of the best things about hoteling in my book ;), but they were very accommodating with distributing towels and other supplies. I most likely will be bringing my family here again.

    This is a lovely hotel. We have stayed here for 6 summer vacations. Due to Covid, the spa is not open and their great breakfast buffet was not available, housekeeping could only clean every 5 days. Having said this, we still had a great time. The breakfast was scaled down, but a breakfast was still available and nice. I would recommend this hotel.
