      • The bar area is nice, the staff at the hotel are obviously very well trained, and professional, the rooms are very comfortable and have everything you would expect. Piano playing does'nt get any better than this, breakfast is a good full American buffet breakfast and spa is fabulous ideal for relaxing.

        Not a great location, front desk not very helpful and the shower was USELESS and the remote control for the TV was broken. Food was disgusting.
