Rooms are very modern and comfortable. Free WiFi was great. Restaurant is lovely. The whole hotel has an overall feeling of modern and hip comfort; love the low lighting in common areas. Pricing was reasonable. The spa baths are quite small and don’t fit two average sized people so if you’re looking for a romantic spa weekend, then this probably isn’t your best choice. The offer of breakfast via room service would be a good addition to the services menu. The TV’s need to have more apps available such as Netflix. Would have liked to have been able to sign in to my own account to watch Netflix, but I wasn’t even able to set up the screen mirroring to stream from my phone or my Apple TV that I brought with me. We had a staycation away from our children with the intention of enjoying room service, Netflix, and a spa, but were only able to get room service dinner and watch a movie a USB device. And only able to have a spa separately.

Power movement sensors kept turning the power off and then coming back on after sensing movement setting the heater going throughout the night when not wanted. Had to keep getting up throughout the night to switch off again.
