  • Family with children

    Our stay was short lived. Unfortunately our 3 year old fell in the hotel room and we ended up having to check out by 5:30 to go to the E.R. for x-rays. The hotel staff/manager was not accommodating in the least. While I did not expect a credit on my credit card, I thought an offer of a voucher for a future stay was appropriate considering the circumstances. At the very least, a smile, apology and a voucher for drinks would have been nice.

    Location over the lake and Bliss massage.

    That our room was not ready when we arrived, 3hrs after check inn openned. The front desk was a tight, unorganized cluster of people and bags when checking inn. Did not feel the high rates were completely justifable.

    promptness

    in 5 days the mini bar was never refilled

    Its a really classy hotel, with a great vibrant buzz around it, ideally situated beside the lake, and very close to the shops.

  • Family with children
    7.8

    Location and view were great. The beds were extremely comfortable.

    Parking is $48 and the price went down drastically after I purchased from bookings.com.

  • Group of friends
    9.6

    great bar and lobby area w/ lovely rockers that overlooked the water.

    concierge should learn more brunch suggestions besides "The West Egg".

  • Older travelers
    8.8

    Constant vacuuming of lobby and elevators.

  • Older travelers
    5.0

    View from the room was good. .

    Staff more concerned about impressing themselves than accommodating guests.

  • Single
    7.0

    the concierge was very helpful.

    the food from the room service (delivered at 11.00 pm) was awful.
