Hotel is very good but the Saturday night wedding in the ballroom was so loud all over the hotel. Any guest not at the wedding was subject to that noise until the wee small hours. Not fun and no sleeping though it.

No bottle opener or teaspoons in room. One bathrobe only. No exhaust fan in bathroom. No response from Reception (had to left voice message with no response). Cleaners were vocally noisy and also most crashed into us with cleaning cart. Restaurant served us cold steak that was not medium rare but rare. Not a great experience at all :(
