Nice hotel. Nice rooms. Dissapointed that the items I’d called and asked for in advance weren’t done and then when I called from the room was told there was only one person working so we had to go down multiple times to retrieve missing items. Rooms weren’t tidied up and dry towels replaced even though we stayed multiple nights. Breakfast was lacking and the kids milk had went bad
