Beautiful lobby with way overpriced items in the gift shop and restaurant. Parking was free and they had a free shuttle to and from the banquet hall (there for a wedding).
I'm not sure what the deal was with the breakfast buffet but there were hardly any items on the buffet.
The rooms were nice but missing outlets. Had to unplug the lamp just to plug in my phone and when doing so saw condoms and popcorn behind the dresser. The coffee maker was set up in the bathroom probably for this reason.
