Excellent hotel.

The location is perfect. The rooms are clean and comfortable with superb bedding. Chef is amazing! Definitely try the stuffed chicken. Staff was superior in every way. Jorge is top notch as host. It's more like you are home with family.

Better than great

Room was over the top. Clean and so comfortable. Every employee that I had contact with had a smile on their face and were more than pleasant. Room service was fast and good. It was a good location and everyone was anxious to help with information.

Awesome Hospitality!!

The service was great! Great southern hospitality!! The hotel itself is breathtaking, but the staff just makes it more wonderful! John Flores is full of laughs! This was my first stay, but surely it isn't my last! Cant wait until next time!! See you soon.
