"Best in class" adequately describes this hotel from the reservations to the check-in, to the top notch customer service received throughout our stay. This was a perfect location for a girl's getaway weekend where we celebrated a surprise birthday for one of our friends. the hotel's restaurant, Heron's, helped us to host a surprise birthday brunch. Attentive service and the meals were tastefully prepared and presented. After brunch, 5 of us spent the afternoon at their heavenly spa, where they made every effort to accomodate appointments close together. A personal 'thumbs up' for the deluxe pedicure - amazing!
If you appreciate architectural design, the structure's stone façade and clean lines have a Frank Lloyd Wright feel. The interior has a relaxed feel about it, tastefully decorated with beautiful artwork and floral arrangements. Rooms are spacious and well appointed; our suite was comfortable enough to accomodate three adults without being overcrowded. The property is a naturalists haven, beautifully landscaped and nestled in a wooded area near the SAS campus, with a pond and walking trails. It is also conveniently close to RDU airport.
I've stayed at some of the best hotels in the country and this is definitely one of them. Kudos to the staff for a well run property.
