Lovely hotel ... room was a townhouse suite which had all we could have asked for ... however, it states "european continental breakfast". Its Euorpean only if you consider cold cereal "European". Served in your room ... arrived prompt but not served as stated in the hotel main area. Our biggest disappointment was coming back from shopping the first day at 4 and finding the room not made up or cleaned. Called the desk to be told "they would have someone up". No one came and when we went to dinner went to the desk again and was told "I will personally change the towels" and we had to ask to have trash emptied. Beds not made, room not cleaned .. but had clean towels. The room was never cleaned prior to 4 or 5 pm on a daily basis ... that is upsetting if you want to shower, etc., prior to going out to dinner. They really missed the boat there. Between the awful cold cereal and lousy coffee (which you had to make in your room) ... I'd only give them, at besst, 2 stars. Beware.
