The newly renovated rooms are beautiful and the wifi is super fast. All of the staff, from the front desk to the bell and concierge staff are excellent. Downside: restaurant staffing seemed a bit chaotic at times, making ordering and receiving the meal slow, and refreshing cups of coffee.

Everything you could want (but food is expensive!)
Sarova Panafric was an absolutely beautiful place to stay for a workshop, and the location in town is unbeatable. While the hotel is super nice and you will not want for anything, you'll certainly pay for it. How many raviolis do you think you get for $23 on the room servive menu? The answer is 3! Yikes! Similar situation with simple chicken wings. Other than food prices and portion sizes though, I have no complaints and loved this hotel otherwise.
