We stayed for Mother’s Day for a staycation and we chose the lake view king suite. The view was breath taking as soon as you opened the door. The room was chic and extremely comfortable. 2 things I would have changed was the fact that you had to call for an ice bucket and wait for them to bring it up and there’s no fridge or microwave in the room. Since it was a suite, we definitely should have had one. I called down to request one as the sign in the room instructs but they said they ran out of them. There also wasn’t a fitted sheet on the bed and the mattress was showing. Instead there was a flat sheet being used as the fitted sheet. Given the price and location those 2 things bothered me. Other than that, great staff, beautiful room, amazing bed and shower. Will stay there again.
