Recently remodeled and looked and felt good. Again too expensive with high add-ons. Upscale hotels in general are becoming very expensive - - considering the time spent at the hotel and the amenities, or lack of.

Nice people

Reviewed on: 22 Mar 2019

My wife and I were both struck at how nice everyone was. Very helpful, and courteous. They were accommodating, knowledgable, and not pretentious, which places like this can be at times. The pools, grounds, hot tubs which were a great temp. and the restaurant was wonderful (: The staff was very knowledgeable, always wanting to help, it was great! One down side was, that they seemed to not have all the info from the booking, or had if mixed up. When we showed them the travel agents booking, and communication with the travel agent, they honored it without question. I would go back!
