It appeared that most staff was inexperienced and being trained. Remodeled rooms were ok but not as nice as they were described when we made our reservations. The staff was accommodating and friendly however, most lacked experience and knowledge of the surrounding community when questioned.

We had a great time despite the ongoing renovations. The property is going to look amazing when complete. The service was excellent. A few minor annoyances with incomplete housekeeping service (missing towels, failing to restock the coffee service, etc.). The areas where renovations are done are immaculate - the restaurant is beautiful, the lounge is warm and inviting. The pool area is clean and quiet (at least it was during our stay). With a few minor exceptions, this was a perfect weekend getaway for two!

Overall pretty nice place, was under construction, but still beautiful. Wish I could have enjoyed the spa and the pool. The food was delicious and the bar tenders did a wonderful job. Wait staff was extremely mannered and polite. Wish they had coffee in the lobby at checkout.

Room phone was inoperative and no room service menu was in the room. Called Friday evening to the front desk and nothing had been resolved by the time we checked out Sunday. Property is under a major renovation but still looks great.

Even though the property is undergoing some renovations, it didn't really have much impact on our stay. The room was recently renovated, was clean, and was nicely appointed. The staff was friendly, and helpful, and the atmosphere was quiet. We would definitely stay again.
