Le Labo Rose 31 toiletries in large bottles for eco-friendly purposes (no more travel sizes toiletries). Comfortable beds with lots of pillows and seating area (couch and arm chair with coffee table) which was a really nice touch (i.e. having space to eat room service). Bathroom was small but functional. Pool area was under-renovations during our stay. We could use pool (which we didn’t think was heated as it was rather cold), but hot tub was closed. Starbucks located on property and hotel was central to our events, which was convenient. Room was clean, but we could hear some noise from outside the hotel.

Did not make an effort to go above and beyond. Our kids were in another room on same floor, but not close. Had mentioned this in reservation that we wanted rooms close. However, when we checked in, they were not.
