    I'm confused about how this hotel can have so many positive reviews. It was nothing special and in fact I had a very uncomfortable night because of the giant stiff pillows (I called the front desk but they apparently do not staff the desk overnight)....More

    We were on the far end, on the second floor and we could see the mountains. I'm sure the third floor had even better views. There is an awesome sunrise from the window.
