Not a fan.
The property is lovely beyond words but the room was not nice. My sheets were dirty - maybe a stain but didn’t check that close. The property is dated and needs upgrades. The floor was very warped and caused me to trip a few times. The front desk lady wasn’t friendly. I would not go back.
