The parking is problematic. If off-site, it takes longer than anticipated; BUT this can perhaps be communicated to the check-in guest; so nobody has unrealistic expectations. Having stayed at O W many a time before; I was not happy with the COVID restrictions at Breakfast. I really missed their buffet breakfast - but again, circumstancial. accepted

Very nice hotel in great location. Very comfortable room and great breakfast. Only complaint was unstable wifi. When it worked it was good and fast. Other times it was very slow and disconnected frequently.
