Never had a more perfect hotel stay

I stayed here only one night. This hotel nailed every criteria for a great stay: great staff, great room, great bed, great shower, great supper, great breakfast. If something could have been done better, I don't know what it is. My only regret is that I was in the area for only one night. I certainly hope to return and to stay longer.
