We weren't too satisfied with the way the hotel handled our reservations for my sister's graduation, however the complimentary breakfast was great and our server Jared K. was awesome. Thanks Jared for your hardwork and attentiveness.

This is a wonderful hotel. Beautiful décor and colors, elegant but comfortable and soothing. Good food, good wine, great pool with hot tub and comfortable fitness center with everything you'd want.

Bed was very comfortable, and...
