Wonderful stay at this lakeside wonder. Thanks to the Virtuoso upgrade, we were put in a room that staff referred to as their favorite in the entire hotel! Our balcony and patio both provided lovely spots to enjoy the lake. All dining rooms, inside and out, provided superior service and delicious menus. Beautiful gardens, swimming pools, et al.
