check-in: quick and efficient, but didn't get the welcome drinks they promised.
lobby: spacious with choir or folk music playing
room: stayed in the twin deluxe. The beds were more single than twin with not enough space to move around; mattresses were a bit on the hard side and not comfy. The pillows were soft though. Bed linen changed daily. Separate shower, toilet and bath. AC works fine. Big flat screen tv in the main bedroom and small flat tv in the wall of the tub which my son enjoyed. Complimentary 2 bottles of water daily. Toiletries ok, replenished daily. Minibar-nonexistent and they even promised free soda with our package but we never got them! Free internet access! Bedroom fixtures need an upgrade even though they are going for the historical theme.
pool: adequate sized and kid friendly. open till 10 pm.
gym: very good and up to date equipment open till midnight.
food: great variety, but I've tasted better.
staff: polite, courteous, helpful
