I liked the place it was nice, but there was an issue with a room i did not reserve it was a computer mistake and I had to pay for a night for a third room I did not reserve instead of the 2 rooms I originally reserved I think that was uncalled for especially since I did'nt even use the room

Beautiful hotel with excellent staff and was very attentive and helpful. Hotel was very well maintained and installing upgraded flooring in elevator area with minimum interruption to operations. Loved the hot tub being HOT, not lukewarm. Location was within 25 minutes of ANY local attractions. Easy on and off access by interstate. Only negative was ice machine on a few floors didn’t work. So we pampered Americans had to get ice, via elevator, one floor down. LOL

We were woken at 4AM with music & noise from the gym. I had requested a quiet room since I am a light sleeper. They moved us to an upgraded room the second night
