Great trip
Check in was quick and easy but hard to find the check in counter. Room was great (view, comfort). The only issue was a clogged bathroom sink that drained slowly and a Cheeto in the chair from a previous guest. Staff were super friendly and helpful except when entering the restaurant. It is confusing because there is a desk to wait and be seated but no one comes and the bartender sees you waiting and doesn’t choose to assist you with what you should do. We saw several people including us that had to walk around looking crazy and some just left. Overall, great view, nice people, and comfortable stay. No local places to eat other than the hotel restaurant so please keep this in mind when staying.
