How to Get There
This is a hidden gem. So much to offer between the pub and the pools. The complimentary breakfast was very nice. The room was very comfortable including the bed. It's in a very nice area as well. You won't be disappointed.
My husband and I visited this hotel for our first mini-vacation with our ten month old son. We picked this hotel based on the number of good reviews it had received. Very misleading. Upon arriving, the grounds were quite beautiful (perk). Once checked in, we realized that we were placed in a room far smaller than what we had asked. The front staff was extremely understanding and accommodating. As a result, we were moved to another area on the same floor (thank you!). Unfortunately, this side of the hotel was nearly 15 degrees warmer than the other side (downfall). The room had clearly not been cleaned in quite some time either (crumbs on the floor throughout, garbage under the desk, blood / red paint on bathroom wall, musty smell), but we settled in regardless (cleaning up along the way).
When we booked the hotel, we were told that there would be a pack-n-play available to use for our son. Once settled, we called down to request just that. What was brought to us was a squeaky, (very) small, metal “crib” on wheels with a mattress placed on top of a wooden board. Umm...luckily we brought our own covers, but I had wished we had brought our own pack-n-play as a back up.
Since it was musty and hot, we decided to use the air conditioners (one in each room of the parlor). Each room had access to their own thermostat on the wall which leads you to believe that both rooms have the ability to hold different temperatures. Nope. At night we attempted to have our room cooler than the room for our son. That is not an option. Despite having your own thermostat, you do not get to choose the temperature for that room (downfall).
Lastly, for the three nights we stayed, we had limited ability to use the wi-fi internet. We found this odd because the facility holds business conferences often and we thought internet accessibility would be a priority. Unfortunately, the internet range was hit or miss in our room. This was a huge let down when we attempted to play Sesame Street for our son. Despite not having solid internet, we did try to rely on the television during down time. Another let down. 2 out of the 3 nights the satellite did not work in the evening.
Overall, the facility was beautiful and the staff were very friendly. We had a wonderful dining experience at the pub (expensive) and enjoyed walking the grounds. Unfortunately, the rooms were disappointing. We had high hopes and were let down. If we return to the area, we would recommend a different hotel.
I was here for a conference and the hotel is extremely clean and well taken care of. The staff was friendly and our conference was amazing.
You will need an uber/lyft to get any where that is outside the conference center.
The food provided for the conference was very good as well.
My only complaint is that they say they have airport / other local transportation, however, it is very limited. If you come in early or leave late, you are out of luck with the hotel. You will need a uber/lyft.
