Thank you for taking the time to provide this valuable feedback from your recent stay. We are pleased to find that your stay exceeded your expectations and appreciate the recognition shown to our staff, both front-of- and back-of-house. With things feeling colder and impersonal due to the interpersonal precautions we all need to take with COVID-19, the human element is all the more important. If we can be of assistance in the future, or if you would like to provide any further feedback, please do not hesitate to reach out to us directly. Stay safe and we look forward to having you again.

Due to Covid-19, some amenities are not available; otherwise, it probably would have been excellent.

Thank you for taking the time to provide this valuable feedback from your recent stay. While feedback is always important, it is all the more so given the unique set of challenges posed by our current environment. Given the current environmental challenges, we adjusted our breakfast offering to strictly Grab-and-Go. This consists of a breakfast pastry, fruit, and bottle of water -though we do still offer tea and coffee (both regular and decaf). While this is, of course, far from ideal and we are eager to be able to once again provide our guests with the breakfast buffet they know and love, we appreciate the understanding shown by guests like yourself. If we can be of assistance in the future or if you would like to provide any further feedback, please do not hesitate to reach out to us directly at the property. Once again, thank you for taking the time to provide us with your feedback. We look forward to having you again, whenever your travels take you this way.
