    Perfect

    Room was small for the money Music in both bars was so loud that it turned us away; obviously popular with a different crowd, though!

    Nothing - it was a nightmare

    We were given a smoking room when confirmation said strictly non smoking. Asked to be moved and was told hotel was full so not possible. Was told Booked.net booked that room. Room smelt like an ash tray. Were only moved after 2 nights to a better room. Tried to get a refund and were refused. Service and attitude was poor. Would never stay at a w hotel again. We telephoned Booked.net and they were told that we were offered another hotel which is a categorical lie.

    The location and the view.

    The room was very small. There is no privacy in the bathroom. Only shutters separate the bathroom from the room. Every noise made in the bathroom is clearly heard by any other guests in the room. The door to the bathroom was a sliding piece of bamboo. The bathroom is what I disliked about our hotel room.

    Nice

    They charged an extra $500+ to my credit card after I had checked out, so I had to deal with that. The previous time I stayed they assigned us to not one but two rooms that already had shocked occupants in them when we walked in.

    Nice

    Location and staff were great.

    Lamp shade had a burn hole upon our arrival, the shower design (half door) is horrible and water splashes all over the bathroom floor as well as the well where it had casued a bit of mold. For the price we had higher expectations for our room.

    Very good

    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.

    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.

    Perfect

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

  • 7.8
    Very good

    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.

    Perfect

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

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