What a wonderful experience. The rooms are beautifully decorated and very comfortable. The staff are gracious and hospitable. They really do whatever they can to help. I got shown the latest addition of a family room which is exquisitely designed and decorated. The restaurant downstairs was a little noisy when we arrived and concerned us a bit but you couldn't...
