The design is wonderful, it’s quiet, the food is gorgeous and the beds are delectable. Appreciate the free minibar and breakfast was sublime. Some food options after 10pm would be good, and maybe some herbal teas in the rooms.

Parking at Hotels should never cost, IMO. Food was a little pricey, but other than that - this is a wonderful Hotel to stay at. Staff were great, room was excellent.

Hello there! We apologize for the parking and hope this did not tarnish your experience with us! We wish parking was free too! We hope to welcome you back in the future.

Due to rooms being small, things like the bedside tables and the bathroom vanity etc were very small. We enjoyed the bar area and Monster restaurant.
