Our room was unfortunately on the second floor right above the valet. All night long we could hear cars tearing out of the driveway - loud, rumbling trucks and sports cars. I have no way of knowing if these were the employees parking the cars, or guests leaving, but it made for a poor night’s sleep. It also made sitting on our balcony less enjoyable. Our room was large, clean, and very nice, the staff is helpful, and the restaurant is delicious. But if you book this hotel, I recommend requesting a room far away from the valet parking station.

The property is well maintained and clean. You cannot have a drink at the bar at the moment due to COVID restrictions and how the restaurant is setup. Drinks are placed in to go cups and you need to find a place to sit and try and enjoy the views.
