Rooms were spacious, modern, clean and comfortable. Liked the restaurants and overall design of the hotel. Housekeeping service was wonderful. Beds were a little uncomfortable (too soft and a little uneven).

Love the property. Recently renovated and our room was beautiful. However there was not a refrigerator in the room that we remember having on our last visit pre-Covid. I has been uses insulin and that was not available. Also when we left there was no we’re open we could get a coffee to go and the sandwich they offered us was made the night before. That was the only disappointing experience.

The property was beautiful. The renovation was very nice and classy. Our room was noted as "renovated" as I assume some are not. The room was nice. Pool and hot tub were average.
