I recently stayed at this hotel during a snowstorm. I loved the way the room was set up. One bed was facing north to south the other bed was east to west. We had supper in the restaurant and food was delicious.

Dear Marie-Beth D, I'm sorry you were provided incorrect information by Bring Fido. We actually do not have any affiliation with Bring Fido, they are a third party provider who resell guestrooms. To ensure the best possible rates and the most accurate information I would always suggest booking directly with a hotel. Kind regards, Thierry
