  • Liked: Cleanliness, staff & service, amenities, property conditions & facilities

The style and detail touches of the original building design remains well which was the main reason attracted us to the place. Beautiful location. Very clean. Food was very good although pricy. Parking is a bit challenging if arrive late. The shower design is nice but not so functional. Hard to keep water in and shower curtain is too thin and too short. Seems an easy fix. Experience would improve!
