A pampered weekend!
Exceptional vacation! We truly felt pampered by the staff—the Gold Lounge was such a peaceful oasis. The breakfast, and the evening canapés were delicious. For sure the highlight was the staff: attentive & friendly! If we need a weekend retreat, we will do this again.

8/10 Very good

Very nice Hotel, the Gold staff really helped me get situated. The hotel has to figure something else out with the tour buses. I know that's a lot of rooms filled, but that situation where they allow the buses to monopolize the valet area for long stretches so other guests cannot arrive is totally unacceptable.
