            • Family with children
              7.0

              Our stay was short lived. Unfortunately our 3 year old fell in the hotel room and we ended up having to check out by 5:30 to go to the E.R. for x-rays. The hotel staff/manager was not accommodating in the least. While I did not expect a credit on my credit card, I thought an offer of a voucher for a future stay was appropriate considering the circumstances. At the very least, a smile, apology and a voucher for drinks would have been nice.

            • Couple
              8.2

              Location over the lake and Bliss massage.

              That our room was not ready when we arrived, 3hrs after check inn openned. The front desk was a tight, unorganized cluster of people and bags when checking inn. Did not feel the high rates were completely justifable.

            • Couple
              7.0

              promptness

              in 5 days the mini bar was never refilled

            • Couple
              10.0

              Its a really classy hotel, with a great vibrant buzz around it, ideally situated beside the lake, and very close to the shops.

            • Family with children
              7.8

              Location and view were great. The beds were extremely comfortable.

              Parking is $48 and the price went down drastically after I purchased from bookings.com.

            • Group of friends
              9.6

              great bar and lobby area w/ lovely rockers that overlooked the water.

              concierge should learn more brunch suggestions besides "The West Egg".

            • Older travelers
              8.8

              Constant vacuuming of lobby and elevators.

            • Older travelers
              5.0

              View from the room was good. .

              Staff more concerned about impressing themselves than accommodating guests.

            • Single
              7.0

              the concierge was very helpful.

              the food from the room service (delivered at 11.00 pm) was awful.
