We stayed at this hotel for three nights last week. We were in room 824 which looks out over the pool and horse paddocks at the back of the hotel - a lovely view. The hotel has a beautiful, comfortable lobby which also is the location of the bar and the restaurant. The room was comfortable, clean and spacious. Since we were on the "executive level" (floors 8 and 9) we had a complimentary breakfast in the Executive Lounge on the 9th floor, where Maxi took excellent care of us. We ate twice in the bar. The food was delicious and Greg the bartender makes a mean martini. Although it's convenient to stay in a full service hotel, there are quite a few restaurants within walking distance.
Our only minor negative comments are 1) the exhaust fan in the bathroom was not working very well, 2) we left at 8:30 one morning and came back at 1:30, but our room had not been cleaned, and 3) the small refrigerator in the room could stand to be replaced.
If not for the delay in cleaning the room, I would give 5 stars for service.
Otherwise, we would definitely stay here again. If you stay, don't forget to take a walk out back to meet Buddy the Clydesdale!
