1 Night Sleepover
We only had a one night stay. Everyone is very friendly and the place is very neat. Service is a bit slow, and they did forget utensils with breakfast (room service). Our waitress at dinner did her utmost best to keep us updated on food progress and checking in ons us. Food was delicious and being able to see the wine selection is great. The views are definitely worth the stay.
