Amazing Stay

We only stayed one night, but every second was top notch. All of the staff went above and beyond in all of their interactions with us. Polite, helpful, professional in every way. The hotel was gorgeous and emasculate. We were also impressed with the pool and gym. Best gym I have ever seen in a hotel. I truly felt like the price, although high compared to hotels I usually stay in, was well worth it for this special occasion stay.

We were awestruck when we entered the lobby. Registration was flawless. An upgrade to a Studio Suite was quite a surprise. Very relaxing indoor salt water pool. Quiet Comfortable Elegant room. Pleasant, courteous staff and exquisite dining. Not use to spending so much for a room. but this will be a lasting memory.
