I was there for an overnighter. We did go to the bar whose website seemed to have overtaken my phone!! But it was fun and the drink was different and cute. We were still masked so distancing was still in place. The bed was big and comfortable!!! (I take my pillow every where I go) The only thing I would mention is that it took a while for my phone call to the hotel to me answered. otherwise i did enjoy my stay!
