My husband chose this hotel as the location for his high school reunion because of the beautiful gardens in which people could visit outside the ballroom where a DJ was booked, and because of the upscale rooms. The Sheraton promised they would not book another event so the gardens would be available along with the ballroom--then turned around and booked a wedding there without informing the Reunion Committee. They found out on the day of the Reunion that the gardens were off limits! The Sheraton would not make any refund.
There were 2 bartenders on duty for the event, but one didn't know how to make most mixed drinks. Instead of organizing a beer/wine line for this guy to serve, and a mixed drink line for the experienced bartender, they had people wait in one line as the inexperienced guy asked the other guy--or the customers--how to make the drinks! A lot of people spent 20-30 minutes in line.
The rooms themselves are large, comfortable and clean, and have refrigerators and flat screen TVs. Some have nice views, but ours looked out on a staircase (despite my husband being Reunion Committee Chair), so ask about this when you book if you want a more private experience.
The outdoor pool is large and inviting, with plenty of seating and sunning areas. The gardens are lovely (we saw them the next morning!) I don't recommend the restaurant if you are hungry and/or in a hurry. We waited nearly an hour to be served at 11 am on Sunday, though there were very few people in the restaurant.
In conclusion, this would be a great place to have a private getaway (ask for that private room!), but book your event elsewhere--unless you get everything in writing including conditions under which you want a refund if contract terms are not met.
