    Old buildings but well kept. Nice and clean everywhere. The numbers of the available tables in the restaurants were so small but understandable considering the COVID situation.

  • 6.0.Good

    This hotel is fantastic. However, the pictures on Expedia do not match the room types. We paid a premium price for a premium room and ended up taking a standard room when the room we were given didn't match the pictures. We ended up paying over $400.00 for a $200.00 room.

  • 6.0.Good

    The hotel was beautiful! The biggest issue was that the mini fridge in our room did not work so we had to throw some things away that got spoiled and 2 of the lamps in our room didn’t work either. We let the hotel know this at check out and their only solution was to refund our 18 dollar parking fee.

    think again

    Cleaned room w Lysol wipes upon arrival and was surprised as to the cleanliness especially w the virus. No directions as to how to enter hotel and get to reception desk. Needs remodeling. Knew prices were going to be high but think this was a bit over the top. Considering what a wedding here cost, I would think they would give family members a special rate.
