Very convient to front door, elevator and our dining room. Our room was ready early with refrigerator turned on. Dining room was set up as requested and there was no shortage of wait staff. There was no rush for us to leave.

Staff was excellent. However, I did wait quite some time during dinner when I asked for a few condiments to go with my meal and hunted down the waitress to get the check upon completion. Understandable and it was still a great experience!Bartender was great!
