I have stayed here multiple times and always have a great experience over several years. The accommodations and dining on premise are top notch, and the little attention to detail (water in room, refrigerator access if needed) is appreciated!More

We were on the far end, on the second floor and we could see the mountains. I'm sure the third floor had even better views. There is an awesome sunrise from the window.
