Wonderful room!

05/07/2018 dsressex, essex, England

I've stayed in 5 star hotels where the accommodation is less luxurious - we had a huge room with a spectacular view of the water and the bathroom was gorgeous, a deep, large bath as well as a walk-in... more

Dear dsressex, Thank you for the great review and the commentary regarding the room. We hope to see you again soon. Sounds like you figured out a way to signal you were ready to return to the hotel. Unfortunately, when people make return arrangements they don't always stick to a schedule. We would have the lonely shuttle we have scooting around town and not being very efficient. To other International travelers, I know there's a way to make your cell phones work while here in the US, or at least I know Americans traveling abroad can get theirs to work in Europe, so because you all are usually ahead of us telephonically I'd think it works for you too. Call your carrier.

Generously sized room, all around impressed

02/07/2018 jason s,

Room was clean. What impressed me was how wide the room was. Most hotel rooms that sleep 5 are deeper to accommodate two queen beds and a couch, but the width of this room really added to the comfort ... more

Dear Jason Sorry that we missed the points and the gift. We usually hit that all the time. If we didn't catch you as you left, just give the Front Desk a call and let's see what we can do. Also, in our sister hotel the Executive Inn & Suites we serve a mean Steak or Salmon dinner for $16 inclusive of tax. Next visit stop in there for a meal. Thank you

Excellent Service!
