I came with my mother and two year old son, for a little Mother’s Day treat. The hotel is absolutely beautiful, the staff is very friendly and the beds are comfortable. We had a fantastic stay and I look forward to our next visit.

This a great hotel and we have stayed here often. But the price i was quoted and booked on line for was not the same as the front desk wanted to charge. Travelocity and the hotel need to agree what the price that is published before i get to the front desk to check in.
