8/10 Very good

Great staff, good location
The lobby was very clean. The rooms need some updating as some standard things like headboards and shower heads seem like they've outlasted their expiration dates but mgmt was quick to positively respond when we brought it up. The staff as a whole was wonderful! The front desk didn't hesitate to help us with bags, the bartender went above and beyond to make a perfect Gin Fizz the traditional way, and breakfast staff was very friendly (paid breakfast was very good!). The only things I would note is do not expect to use the shuttle. We tried multiple times and it was just too unpredictable to utilize very well. Would happily stay here again!

6/10 Good

Not so great
Complete goofiness when it came to in-room dining. Had to call 3 times because of no answer at any of the direct dials. Called front desk who immediately put ne back into the no answer circle. Finally got someone to answer who said "I'll walk the order over". Also, very slow on the check in to the hotel. only one person at the front desk and things were moving very slowly. Wondering if they have enough staff to maintain a solid operation.
