Although this is a nice SPG hotel, it does not meet the standards of most SPG resorts with spas. I would never rank this with the 4 & 5 star properties that start wood has to offer. Although nice, it is not a luxury property.

I use Trip advisor for all my traveling needs and I wrote reviews for all my trips....I booked this hotel today and I am now concerned due to the reviews I have read.....does this hotel have fully renovated, clean rooms?

We are currently going through a guestroom enhancement but can assure you that all of our rooms are comfortable and pristine. As you can imagine, the upkeep of our guestrooms is of the utmost importance and we have a detailed maintenance program in place to ensure the cleanliness of each guestroom is always of the highest quality.
