"No Amenities"
Overall Score2.0/ 5
The hotel itself is beautiful, unfortunately the amenities were terrible. We couldn't find a bottle of water, the safe was broken and our request to fix it was not answered. They have no bed turn down, not a single q tip or shower cap in the bathroom. It seemed like a ghost town! If we weren't staying there for a wedding we would've checked out!
