    Enjoyed my stay. Normally have to pay to park in the garage but got to park for free because I drive a hybrid vehicle!

  • 6.0.Good

    Are my expectations too high?

    Booked a two bedroom suite 2 months in advance. Anticipated an upper floor view suite as in the photos. Ground level suite provided, down the corridor from the kitchen. To get to the suite you have to go through the dining room with your luggage or maneuver your way through the doors into the stairwell and out the other side directly into the kitchen entryway where the kitchen staff are running in and out with carts and trays. Kitchen aromas waft through the hallway. Enough dishes provided in the suite showed food stains and debris that we had to run all through the dishwasher before daring to use. Check-in was 3pm, delayed till 4 with notice by text. Returned at 4, but room still not ready. We were 2 seniors, 2 adults and one 12 yr old but were told explicitly that noise would not be acceptable. Noise from guests in rooms above us was quite noticeable. Tried to hang a towel on the rack above the tub, rack fell off wall, set screws weren't even attached. I understand businesses are all short of staff, but for the price, this was disappointing.

    Great hotel

    A great stay at a great hotel. The small touches make it truly a "home away from home". Lights on in the suite upon arrival and music playing quietly in the background...what a lovely way to walk into our "home" for a few days.
