"A Quite Happy Visit, but."
Overall Score4.0/ 5
my stay was brief only three nights. I note these three "problems" w/my room (#220): 1) for someone w/bad knees: your toilet seat is far too low! 2) for someone who reads in bed: there is no good lighting! 3) your cleaning crew did not refill my coffee pods and cups; I had to ask for them myself after the first night! desk service was friendly and good and my request for a wakeup call was well handled. but the restaurant was more than perfect: aside from excellent food, the staff treatment was 'way over the top!
