The lobby was attractive and modern.Hotel has lovely lake views. Restaurant had good menu, typical gotcha prices and glacial service by a waitress who preferred talking to serving. Everyone ( party of 7) was happy with their food, but we did know our servers life history by meals end.
Well, guess by the title of this review what was wrong. If you get room 230 you will be treated to whatever cooking smells are being vented from the kitchen right into your room! Bacon, French fries, chicken all smell good but not for hours on end! Our ONE request on Kayak was for a QUIET room and we received an email assuring us we were in a quiet section of the hotel. They did not mention that we were going to be surrounded by tournament hockey players screaming in the hall at 5:00 am and setting up slap shot nets in the hall.
Staff was very nice and always accommodating. Also the pool and spa was open until 1:00 AM.
Bed very comfortable. Great view from room.
Club music could be heard through the floor. Could also hear people talking/ TV's in other rooms.
The location was perfect right on the water and very close to downtown. The nightclub had a DJ and was a nice place to hang out.
Everything was very nice however the view from our room was crummy which wasn't a huge deal.
Location and outdoor facilities.
Whirlpool not easily accessible. Hard to get in and out of
