As someone who stays in hotels over 200 nights a year, this place was hands down better than anywhere I've stayed. Susan was unbelievably accomadating. The room was spotless. The beds were extremely comfortable with a down comforter and pillows. The shower in the garden was priceless! The transportation to/from the airport was very fair and easy to set up....
