Beautiful view and comfortable beds. Breakfast was skimpy and they forgot to deliver all ordered items. For the price of the room, the breakfast could have been better.

We paid $1,500.00 for two rooms for two nights ($375.00 per night for just-okay rooms) and didn't expect the bed to be made, but got NO cleaning second day; we had to use the same two washcloths both days/nights, and had just two plastic water cups for both days/nights. They never came in room to even empty the wastebaskets. They just told us no cleaning would be done.

We want to thank you for staying with us and providing feedback. Though we are not providing full housekeeping stayover service due to COVID limitations, our staff stop by every morning to provide fresh amenities and anything you may need. They will not knock if there is a "Do Not Disturb" sign. Even when a guest miss the Housekeeping staff, amenities are always available upon request by call or stoping at the Front Desk.

Check in was delayed. Couldn't get checked in until 4pm. Seems way to late.

As soon as we arrived, I received a text from the front desk asking if I needed anything and I was able to request additional pillows and towels. They were delivered within minutes. I thought that was a nice way to communicate.
