  • Liked: Cleanliness, staff & service, amenities, property conditions & facilities

The rooms were big and the bed was very comfortable. Having a balcony and a fireplace was ver nice. No hotel map, so it was hard to find fitness center and pool and restaurant. Shower had long hairs stuck to the wall which made me question cleanliness of the whole bathroom. In room dining was tasty and service was courteous, breakfast buffet was worth the expense.
